Avril, of Stitchinscience won the visitors choice award for her 'Bigger Australian Splash' - congratulations Avril! Apologies for the poor photo - you can see a much better one on her blog here.
Big thanks to the committee and all the other group members (and their families!) for making the show happen. They did a great job of hanging so many lovely pieces and giving over 600 visitors pleasure, as well as raising money for both REACT and the British Heart Foundation.
I suspect that this was foundation pieced.
Benta's Ferris Wheel. Paper pieced. Love the colours and the quilting on this too.
This is number 40 - a 6.5" block.
Love sewing! Love the friends that I've made through sewing! Love playing with fabric in all sorts of ways!

Cute, but I'm a bit worried that I'm running short of my light colours already, and we still have several weeks of lights to go, I think! It's going to be 'nip and tuck' - although at least as I'm making a scrappy version I'll be able to add in additional fabrics if I need to - although I'll need to hit the shops as anything from my stash is already in the pile ready to use!
I'm now at a pause - I need to decide which of the many options I have I choose for my next quilt. I think that I might have a look in my scraps drawer and decide whether its going to be from scraps or yardage before any other decision can be made!

I'm enjoying trying to choose the fabrics that I think the recipients will like. Turns out that my stash of liberty type fabrics wasn't as extensive as I'd remembered. On the plus side, I rediscovered some lovelies that I hadn't seen for a while, so my head is busy again with ideas for another quilt. Isn't that always the way?!?

A fun way to use up some of the left over fabric.
All good fun, but I'm starting to think that I really need to get my teeth into another 'proper' quilt project. The only thing is, I've got 'real world' stuff to be doing instead! It's never as much fun as sewing, though!
