Ava's Quilt is Finished

Even though it has been soooooooooooooo hot here in Melbourne, I did manage to finish hand quilting the quilt for Ava. I am really happy with how it turned out and it will be another quilt I will find it difficult to part with!

Here are some photos of the completed quilt.

Now I really need to get on with planning the workshops for the upcoming Stitches & Craft Show Melbourne ( March 11th - 15th) - it's going to be absolutely fantastic - 5 days of every type of craft you can think of, and I get to hang out with some fabulous blogging friends!!

And if you are thinking of attending this year's show, pop into your local newsagent for the latest issue of Real Living and you will see, up in the top right corner of the magazine’s cover, a very special ticket deal for The Stitches & Craft Show.

The ticket offers a two-for-one ticket deal, offering free entry to The Stitches & Craft Show if you bring a friend with you to see the Show! Fantastic deal, Audrey & Maude (aka Miss Marzie and Lululollylegs) will be in the Indie Craft section of this year's Show, so make sure you come and say hi to us!

Your hand quilting is so neat! And the photography is divine. Great work as usual. I, too, would find it hard to part with that one. :)

As I saw this the other day I know how gorgeous it is in real life and these photos capture it beautifully! Are they yours or Sean's? They really are fantastic and we all know how hard it is to photograph a quilt.

Not only do you make gorgeous quilts, those are some really stunning photos! I have trouble photographing big things - yours look like they've come from a design magazine!
