Last weekend, I and six friends went to Alexandra for a Quilt extravaganza!
OK not quite an extravaganza but we sure had fun!
The Vickery is a house set up especially for Quilting Retreats (girls fun).
My sweet Garden Quilt kept me toasty (plus a Doona and another Quilt of mine) on the freezing cold nights,I even made my own matching pillowcase out of Ruby...I know it's sad!
We all bought a jellyroll along and made a 1600 Quilt, One quilt pattern I will go back too when I need a Quilt in a hurry. Apparently someone pieced this quilt in 36 minutes, they must have had a rocket up there bum coz we took probably closer to 90 minutes.
All quilts turned out magnificently but alas we all packed up in such a hurry we never got to the photo of them all together. Here are 3 of them...
