Festival of quilts

My companion at festival of quilts yesterday was Master Chaos number 2 who has expressed an interest in making his own quilt. He likes the snowball block and has designed a quilt with blocks on point. A couple of people we got chatting to asked if he was there to carry my purchases and were a bit surprised to hear he was shopping for his own project.

I don't think I needed help to carry some thread and a new bobbin case, pathetic I know, but when faced with so much choice I get overwhelmed and unless I have a specific project to shop for I tend to come away with nothing. I do have a couple of UFO's  to keep me busy for a while.

We saw many super quilts some of them are below and I saw some friends, one of them prompted me to blog today. Hi Mo.
 I am sure I have done several quilts and a bit of dressmaking since my last post, I certainly have been involved with 2 shows, (I hadn't realised it had been that long) I did a bit of crew work on Up Pompeii when the set had to appear to shake and fall down after a volcano eruption and I made 20 graduation gowns for the youth project production of Fame. There is a  load of theatre laundry drying on my washing line as I type.
I have a lovely quilt on my machine at the moment and a very good reason to go and get on with it.
 I will post about it soon.
