Well I did this post some time ago, in early July and somehow forgot to actually post it.  My bad.  So anyway I thought I’d hit the Publish button and do a proper post after I get back from the Melbourne Craft & Quilt Fair at Jeff’s shed which started today.

From a month ago…

It’s been a real whirlwind of quilty goodness lately.  Things are returning to normal thankfully or I don’t think I’d last much longer.

Margaret has posted about some of the lovely quilts we spent hours pouring over so be sure to have a look at the photo’s she’s been able to show.

Anyway here are some rough photos of the CAG event as well as some quick shots I took of some Boutis that I saw as I was leaving the Sydney quilt show.

and this if my favourite Boutis

I’ve already starting drafting a pattern of this last one, as an appliqué of course.

CAG was fabulous and it’s alway a great opportunity to catch up with lots of lovely and amazingly talented quilters.

I wasn’t able to take very good photos at CAG as my camera isn’t up to it but here’s one quilt which is my favourite.  Bev’s quilt is my all-time favourite version that I’ve seen of Di Ford’s 19th Century Baskets quilt.  It’s not a good photo but the quilt is lovely.

And of course it was lovely to catch up with Mary and Joe again at CAG.
