Bathurst blog meet 2015


Ohh I had the most lovely weekend. On Friday morning Jan and I headed out west to Bathurst. After a little stop at Blackheath for the compulsory antique shop and lunch we headed to The home patch where we did a little bit of retail therapy. We arrived late in the afternoon to the sounds of the corks popping.



What's the rules about drinking and sewing????
i don't think it's illegal . . . .  well, not yet


There was lots of concentration


And Victoria, after a pretty big rest over the winter, she got a work out 


She sewed


And sewed


Until all of the centre was together. I completed the centre at about 10am on Sunday morning
i purchased the red fabric for the next border today, so now i just need to save a little money then he'd down to red shed for some backing fabric and batting.

which batting do you prefer?


Of course we did so much more than just sewed, we had show and tell and we told stories , we laughed and like pavlov's dog we knew at the sound of a little bell that it was time for food. It was such a lovely weekend getting to know each other better. Some of us even tried to get their phone to talk dirty to them , with hilarious consequences.
It s very easy to get wrapped up in your own little bubble, it s not until you spend some time with some like minded friendly people that you realise the importance of good friends and laughter . . . . And a little retail therapy . . . 

Ciao

Your new quilt is superb. I think a red binding will be perfect for it. So glad you had a lovely weekend.

I have to say I'm pretty envious of all you girls getting to attend such a wonderful weekend. I've yet to go on a sewing weekend, but it sure looks like you achieve sew much while having sew much fun!!! Love the work you got done!

It looks like you all had a wonderful time! Your quilt is gorgeous!!
Oh and my favorite batting for large quilts is cotton, or sometimes a cotton/polyester blend if I want the quilt a bit lighter.
