Festival of Quilts - Ballarat Australia

 This is the long awaited weekend, when I am exhibiting Quilts with my new Quilt Group - The Begonia Quilters.
I am heading up the Recycle You Stash Stall - and let me tell you, Friday was opening day, and they almost sold out of stash . . . I brought in heaps on Saturday and again, we almost sold out.  I'm heading back to my cupboards to find some more for tomorrow. It was fun on the stall.
 These are my quilts, and its' very exciting to see them hanging in such a beautiful space at the Old Mining Exchange in Ballarat.

I've even put in a special display of my handbags and have decided to sell some to give them a second chance at life. 5 have gone already to new homes.


 This is the Wedding Quilt, which a made a few years ago now for a friend's daughter.  It was a bit scary cutting into the dress at the time, but I was very pleased with the result.  She kindly lent it back so we could show it.
 
It was a BIG day, but I LOVED it, and will be back there again tomorrow.
If you're anywhere nearby - drop in for a look.

Oh I wish I could drop by, it looks fabulous. I'm sure your bags will sell well, they look really stylish hanging up there together. Hope you have another good day tomorrow.

Oh the wedding dress quilt looks stunning. I remember that in your sewing room when you just started it. Great showing of all your stunning wonderfulness.

It's a great show, Annie. I'm planning to go again tomorrow - when will you be there?

Glad the show is going so well for you. I would love to be there and see it all. You have some lovely creations on display and congrats on selling your bags, etc.

Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

It's hard to pick a favourite they are all so good. Good on you for selling your stash...was that a bit hard? The bags do look good all hanging there. If you sell them all it's a good excuse to make another one. Were they report writing bags? I found a quilting tutorial on a potters blog that sewed up the jelly roll strips then cut into squares then diagonals...as I suspected there is an easier way than thousands of little bits to begin with. I'll have to finish the first quilt before I rush off and try this labour saving concept.

It all looks great Annie, and I'm so glad that you have had a good response from the public too. It takes a big effort to stage such a display.Your quilts looked very special, and what an excuse to make some new bags!
