A quilt show

Last Sunday my sister and I attended a quilt show at the small town of Rosewood, not far from Ipswich. It was showcasing the talents of the Rosewood Craft & Quilting group and they hold one every two years. My sister and I have been going for years, as much for the yummy morning teas and country hospitality as the craft. Here is a small sample of the show.
Here is one for all those hexie flower makers. My sister has been looking for ideas to assemble some hexagons she's had on the go for a while and was very taken with this layout.

I love quilts with a dark background... although I think my eyes would have trouble without very bright light as well as a magnifier!Strips and flying geese- what's not to like in this simple quilt.
This one captures the spirit of the group I think. They also had displays of other lovely craft.

Can't wait for the next show.
