Quilts In the Barn is on again...

This coming weekend (27th, 28th & 29th September) Linda Collins from Quilts in the Barn is hosting a spectacular display of original Antique Chintz quilts along with a large selection of Chintz inspired quilts made by local quilters. 
This special event is held at Linda's home in Wonga Park, visit here for directions!

How would you like to own this gorgeous Dutch Chintz quilt? Maybe you can - it is the raffle quilt for the event, 
tickets are available on the day with all proceeds going to Breast Cancer Research.

After seeing the beautiful quilts on display you might like to collect a copy of this book...
 'Chintz Quilts' from the Poos collection, 
jam packed and full of loads of inspiring antique quilts. 
The books will be in store very soon! Call the shop or email us to reserve your copy now. 
This stunning book is available at a cost of $90, stocks are limited.

And for a sneak peak inside...

I can't wait to get my very own copy of this very special book.

Sue and I will be at the 'Barn' on Friday morning, if you see us there come and say hello! We love meeting our quilting friends,

I hope to see you there,

From this to that...

It has been a very productive day today! I have taken my work space from an extremely disorganised mess to a relatively sorted, organised, clear table surface. There was a recent trip to Ikea to thank for a lot of it, and a bit of nagging from those who live here with me...... Most of that 'stuff' you can see belongs to current creations in varying stages of finish. Tonight I feel that I will be able to 'finish' something very soon. So keep watching!

Just look what I found underneath that mess! I haven't seen this gorgeous thing for quite awhile. This beautiful table was designed and hand made by my son Brenton for his year 12 (final year) high school project in Design and Tech a few years ago. Wasn't I a lucky girl! Lets see how long it stays nice and clear.....

Now back to my stitching,

p.s. I am very glad you can't see the floor in the photo, it still needs a bit of work... :)
