We got there in good time and our first pit-stop was a decent cuppa! Our noses followed the aroma! Then a quick shuffle on to where the workshops were being held - OK, too early. No problem, we moved over to the quilt display area. Gosh, there are so many amazing quilts on display, you struggle to take in what you see. So many hand-quilted quilts of excellent standard, it just blew us away! Magnificent work done by these people!
Shoot over to get to our first workshop, followed by the second one. Met up with two other HQ quilters, MJ and Carol. Carol stayed with Suzanne and I. From the workshops we moved to complete our tour of the quilts. Then we stopped off for a bite to eat - and met up with MJ again! Finished our lunch and started our stall tour.
We stopped at each quilt fabric and sewing machine stall - and bypassed the other craft stalls such as beading, paper craft, scrapbooking, dolls and knitting.
My first purchase was this jelly roll and pattern.
This roll above will be turned into this quilt below.
I just could not pass this sashiko piece by:
