When I see a sign like this, I know to expect a treat.
The Springwood community quilt show is on for the seventh year and I was determined to go. I arranged to meet a friend for lunch at Springwood (she wouldn't let me back out) so I had the morning to drive to the beautiful Blue Mountains and visit the show. Look at all the quilts!
There were big quilts and small quilts; bright quilts and pastel quilts - everywhere.
Of course, I bought tickets to win the raffle quilt, a gorgeous blue and white Seven Sisters design. (It was made to come to me! Honestly, blue and white - fingers crossed I win.)
I admired the stunning quilts of Guest Quilter Lynne Alchin.
I chatted to the wonderful Isobel Lancashire, winner of the the 2012 Lut-Da Award, which goes to a quilter who has made an outstanding contribution to their local or quilting community via the medium of quilting.
I also caught up with the lovely Chris Jurd, a very talented quiltmaker who teaches all over the place!
I visited each of the TEN vendors there. It's worth going just to browse the stands for goodies.
And, as I was leaving, I convinced one of the vendors to let me photograph her shoes. Aren't they fun?
The show is on again tomorrow at Springwood High School, Grose Road, Faulconbridge between 10am-4pm. I recommend a day in the mountains!
