On Saturday John and I travelled down to Barwon Heads for The Sea Change Quilters' Quilt Show. It was fabulous.
The quilts were wonderful, the devonshire tea delicious, the ladies in the group were charming and the weather was glorious.
There was a section of red and white quilts which were stunning. You can see a slideshow HERE.
We hadn't been to Barwon Heads for ages and it was interesting to see how it has grown, luckily it still retains all of its charm and beauty.
Click HERE to see another slideshow that really shows the diversity of styles of the quilts.
This small wall-hanging of a poodle stole my heart.
After a delicious picnic lunch in Barwon Heads we journeyed to Queenscliffe for a stop at The Chocolate Room where a little caramel filled mouse jumped into my hand.
All in all a fabulous day.
So this week for Tuesday Treasures I'd like to celebrate the myriad of quilt shows put on by fellow quilters in the city and in country towns. It's wonderful to see the creativity shared and witness the friendships and sense of belonging being part of a quilting group can bring.
Do you have something to share with us today? Just pop your details into Mr Linky and join in the fun.
