QuiLT ShoW

I made the short drive down the highway to Wyong and "The Central Coast's Quilt Show" on Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed their 2012 Annual Charity Quilt Competition and Exhibition.

I wandered around the numerous tables of goodies...
















Made a few small purchases...


















Watched a demonstration or two. This one was on English Paper Piecing with Rachael Porter...


















Marvelled at some picture quilts...

















Studied different techniques...





















And met up with Leanne from Mt Vincent Quilts, from HERE...

I had the best "nearly all day" time at this show... huge grin
Especially because I finally got to met Leanne. She is just so lovely and friendly and has invited me into her guild. How wonderful is ThAT!
Sorry Leanne but the pic of the two of us was very blurry...
so it's just YOU!  : )
I'll show pic's of the beautiful quilts that were on display during the week.
Be sure to come back for some very tasty "EyE CanDy"

Looks like a wonderful show. The special techniques in that one quilt sends the mind to thinking about all sorts of new possibilities. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Cheryll, I too had a fabulous time at the show. It was really great to meet you and I hope we can catch up more often. The quilts were amazing and the company of so many quilters was so much fun. I was exhausted by Sun afternoon.
Hope to see you soon
Leanne xo
