I did it!

After days of quilting, quilting, quilting and binding, binding, binding I finally finished my Cat quilt, and made it to The Country Yard on Saturday for their annual exhibition.  The quilts are shown in Kerryn's beautiful country style house, artfully arranged around the lounge, dining and bedroom areas...  with more quilts in the classroom area, and the Challenge entries also on display.  My Challenge Sampler Quilt is in the top right hand corner.  Unfortunately no prizes... but had lots of fun making it!  It is always surprising how the same inspirational items are made into such a diverse group of quilts, well I can't really say quilts because one was a dog coat (see a picture of the lucky owner on the RH side)!

 Nadia and I had a great day out - both winning spot prizes and coming home with a bag of goodies which I'll share another day.

Thanks Kerryn and the other great The Country Yard Ladies... Raewyn, Leeanne, and Megan.


  1. Good for you! And isn't it great to have a finish!!!

  2. Thanks for your kind words Suzanne and glad to provide you with a "deadline" to finish your quilt by!! Re the challenge quilts, all I can say is I am glad that I am not the judge.

  3. Well done you. I'm sorry, I meant to ring you about Saturday but just got caught up in the whirlwind that is life at the moment. Looking forward to seeing your bag of goodies!

  4. Great photos!! Glad you enjoyed the day - and it was neat to see all your items on display, they were all quilts to be proud of.
