Show and tell

You may be wondering what has happened to this weeks show and tell. Well I do have a second quilt finish to show, yes that's my second quilt finish in 2015!!!!  But the weather has been so horrendous I haven't been able to get any decent pictures of it yet.  I am hopeful that tomorrow will be the day so watch this space.

This quilt was started before Christmas and is made using Kaffe Fassett fabrics so as you can imagine its BRIGHT!!! In fact it's a real deviation from my usual colour palette.  I'm not sure what to call it, I thought "dazzling diamonds" or maybe "hypertension"!!!! You see I had an afternoon at home before Christmas because my blood pressure was high and being bored I started looking at fabric on line....... It's dangerous and expensive to be home alone and bored!!!!

I'm off to one of the first Grosvenor spring quilt shows this weekend with my quilting buddy Imelda, this one is in Sussex and I've not been to this venue before so I'm super excited.  Looking forward to being inspired by the quilts and of course seeing what the traders have on offer.  Then the following weekend St Michaels Quilters, AKA Sharon, Sam and myself are off to Tonbridge Wells to check out sewing machines!!!!!

Happy stitching....... Jacky O
