Well, that all folks!! l hope you have enjoyed the photo l had to share. l could go on for ever, but!!!! Of course there were many many other quilts on display that l didn't take photos of. Some just didn't appeal, or held no interest. That doesn't take away from the fact that they were lovely quilts.

l need to get busy with my camera again, and take some photos of what l have been working on lately. A few swap blocks and a quilt for a magazine later in the year.

l am also in the midst of a mini shop hop, as l tour the country, dropping off flyer's and raffle tickets for our up coming Quilts In The Barn exhibition. Its a busy few weeks, not much time for sewing, but loads of inspiration as l visit all the local quilt shops. Someone has to do it!!!
