Lots of fabric fun times.

Lots of fabric fun times.

In amongst all the excitement of the Sydney Quilt Show we had a Whizz Bang! Friday class at Material Obsession. It was an extra fun day that started with a delicious homemade cake to celebrate class member's Marissa's first place win in the Combined Applique and Pieced Category at the Sydney Quilt Show. Here is Marissa's wondrous I Spy quilt. It was made last year in classes at Material Obsession using Chuck Nohara designs taught by Lorena Uriate. It was the first time Marissa has entered the show so it was extra special to win a blue ribbon. I'm sure there are many more to come.  After cake it was onto making the block of the day.  Fiona decided to hand sew her star. It became this perfect glowing star. The colours are so fire and ice!

More amazing quilts from the 2017 Sydney Quilt Show

There were over 400 quilts at this years Sydney Quilt Show.  So many amazing, beautiful, outstanding quilts. This is just a small selection of some of my favourites.  I've included the photo of the information card that accompanied each quilt, it will credit the quiltmaker/s and designers plus it's great to read the descriptions, the stories add so much to the quilts.  This first quilt is this years Best In Show - Star Link by Pamela Brockwell. I'm kicking myself for not getting proper photos of this amazing quilt. I saw it on the set up day and it stopped me in my tracks. Clever pattern, amazing quilting and I love the tiny scallops all around the edges. I had a chat to Pamela and she is just lovely. Such a super star quilter but down down to earth and so friendly.  These next two photos were kindly sent to me by Pam North, thanks Pam!! Check out the scallop binding. This quilt is by Lisa Peterson of Nesting Needles patchwork shop in Coffs
