Congratulations Jules!

Mum belongs to a local quilting group which holds its meetings at a place called Liddlelow Homestead. They do other crafts there as well, like painting and pottery and this weekend was an open weekend for everyone to exhibit their work. So despite it being 35 degrees today, I left Daz at home mowning the lawns and bundled the girls in the car to go see "Nanny Chook" and her quilt! She always has a few projects on the go (who doesn't?) and this particular quilt she was usuing up her stash of Aboriginal prints. Every time I went to her place, she'd take me down to the sewing room to show it to me on the wall and well, Mum and I call a spade a spade, so I always said to her, hmmmmm, don't know about the prints Jules, like to layout though!

But good thing I'm not a judge then as it picked up a second prize! In what category I didn't ask! Naughty daughter am I! I snapped this shot of her and Grace in front of the quilt in question. Matilda was in the hallway refusing to be in the shot! Look how grown up Grace suddenly looks, hair in plaits and not wearing pink. Wonder if either of the girls will follow in Mum's and I's footsteps and take up quilting. Time will tell....

Well Done Jules!!!!

I'm with you Helen...love the layout but not sure about the prints. It's on my 'to so' list!!

Funny! I've always looked at the aboriginal prints and wondered how on earth you'd use them in a quilt. A cushion? Sure! A tablecloth? Maybe. But a quilt - no way!

Yes, Grace does look very grown up! Gosh it happens so fast!
