Beenleigh Quilters Quilt Show

Yesterday I had a prearranged meet up with my friend FIONA from Bubzrugz at Beenleigh Quilters Quilt Show. It's quite close to where I seemed perfect for a catchup. A lovely surprise when a mutual friend of ours Robyn popped off the bus too.....
There were some lovely quilts on show. Here's a couple I snapped.

We were gobsmacked at the size of this Splendid Sampler quilt! The maker had added other blocks special to her.....we some we didn't remember.

Loved these swans and cute!

Cute penguins too....
We found this one interesting with the strips of bias sewn across the top of the blocks.

Pretty stitchery...
And a couple more....

I thought these "hands off" signs were cute....

I am notoriously bad at 'selfies and nothing improved with my efforts yesterday. LOL!
So good to have friends you can be silly with! After a lovely cuppa and delicious homemade goodies we checked out the traders stalls....just a few but.....
I did bring a few bits of loot home.....some lovely bee themed words fabric and some precut squares for my Yoko Saito quilt (yes it is still happening)
Footnote: I made the finish line for my May Postcards....yes!
Thanks for hanging in there.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.....I am chopping clamshells and drawing up more Postcards.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
