Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Out And About.

Posted on | July 30, 2013 | 13 Comments

I have been lucky enough to have recently had eight days in a row that have involved crafty things.  Several days were classes and another  was joining friends for a sewing day.  I had a day of art journalling and another working in a crafty capacity.

But two busiest days were visiting the Craft and Quilt Fair at the Exhibition Centre in Melbourne and then having a lovely day at Friends in Stitches in Glen Waverley.

I enjoy wandering through all the beautiful quilts at the Fair and of course spent time looking at all the vendor stands.

I did attend a workshop with Indigo Niche to learn Sashiko embroidery/quilting. This is the start of the sampler done in class.

I am looking forward to working on this project during the week.


Together with a group of friends I attended Friends In Stitches with Leanne Beasley, Gail Pan and Natalie Lymer.

I think there were about 100 ladies there each day. I was there on the Sunday.

We were given fully kitted projects from each designer.

These were Leanne and Gail’s.

And this was Natalie’s. I was able to complete this one. It makes up into a pin cushion.

We also received postcard patterns.

And then to top it off, we were given a lovely pendant as a gift.

A great day was had by all.

I will finish the post with pictures of the display of designs for each designer.
