Yesterday was the May meeting for our Central Victoria Chapter of  TAS.  Linda Collins & Bev Bannard were guest speakers and they brought the most beautiful quilts to show us. Just fabulous.

Linda Collins, of Quilts in the Barn fame, brought some of her personal collection of antique quilts as well as her own creations.  One of my favourites was a Turkey Track pattern with a cheddar background.

Another favourite of mine was a beautiful Princess Feather quilt. I think the next quilt I let myself start just might be based on this unusually voluptuous Princess Feather appliqué quilt.

I just loved this quilt in Reds, Creams & Blacks.

And last but not least this amazing unfinished Baltimore Appliqué style quilt.  Linda has used only 3 colours and 2 shades in each colour including the background and it was stunning. The photo doesn’t do it justice unfortunately. The designs of the blocks are exceptional. Really well balanced from a design perspective.

Finally some photos on my blog.  Thanks go to my friend, Margaret of Quilt Station, another TAS member who let me have some photos she took on the day.

Ciao for now
