Wyndham Patchworkers Quilt-In

I attended the Wyndham Patchworkers Quilt-In on Saturday and had a fabulous day. The members did a wonderful job with morning and afternoon tea and door prizes (everyone received one, yay).

Local business's donated prizes for the numerous raffles and the guest speaker was Esther Aliu a textile artist, who likes to stencil her quilts. Esther donated two books of her block of the month to be raffled and I am happy to report I was one of the lucky recipients (yay again).

One of Esther's beautiful quilts...

There were four shops in attendance (so lots to browse) as well as a "guess the weight of the buttons" and "how many many safety pins in the jar" competitions for a bit of fun.

Members were encouraged to dress up in black and white with a splash of colour, and of course there were plenty of beautiful quilts to look at.

All in all I had a great day,
