Lots of Suffolk Puffs

I have been madly making suffolk puffs and as they were a little bit smaller than I had thought I had to make more but thankfully I am now stitching them together.

So hopefully peace is just around the corner Miss Mistlemouse is very pleased.
I now have some photos to show you from the Quilt show yesterday as promised. I am always drawn to the appliqued quilts and these were lovely.....needleturned and mostly hand quilted.

I have always fancied making a black background appliqued quilt (the list just gets longer)

When I first started quilting the very talented Aussie designer and quiltmaker Robyn Ginn came to my quilting club to speak to us and show us her quilts.....and I have been a fan since then. I love Robyn's immense talent and her individuality. She is an extradorinary artist. She makes beautiful quilts which are often hand pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted. I was thrilled to see one of her quilts on display.

I just had to take a close up of the medallion in the centre.

There was this gorgeous offering from the very talented Michelle Hill. Stunning!

More Applique. I loved this one. It was hand quilted so beautifully.

Some hexies....
More hexies...
Finally a small selection from the Red/White quilts on tour....

Well I guess it is no secret which quilts attracted me. This is only a small selection of the gorgeous quilts on display. The only thing that disappointed me was that I couldn't get a closer look at the quilts which were hung up high.
So that folks as they say is it. The Queensland Quilters Quilt show.
I wish everyone a great weekend. If you are going to the show, enjoy.
Blessings Michelle xx
