What a Week

A truly wonderful week to share with everyone.

Starting with a trip to Brisbane.

Waiting for our flight to see the Exhibition of Quilts from the V&A.
 from left to right  Lynn, Me, Wendy, Freida, and Di.

A pause for lunch, I started from home at 6:30 am it took a 2 trains, an airflight and shuttle to arrive at the gallery. I was worth it. A chance to view up close and personal quilts from 1700's onward.

The Raja Quilt was also included in the exhibition. It is the earliest known Australian Quilt and treasured part of National Heritage.

Next Stop

Trip Around the World Quilt

Layout for the scrappy TAW blocks. The accidental laying out on the family room floor gave the quilt an interesting square on point border. NO this quilt is destined for a quick finish but an idea to remember.

The finished top
Impromptu quilting for a challenge based on architecture over at 15 min play.  More on this as it progress.
I've had a happy week quilting  Friends.....Flying.....Finishes....First......

You've been having fun. I'm going in August to see the V&A quilts. I've only been hearing great things about the show. I really thought you'd made a border for your Scrappy Trip quilt, those tiles are great for auditioning borders on quilts. The finished top looks great! I really love your 15 Minutes Play piece, it's really striking!! I look forward to seeing where you go with that one.
