Tomorrow myself and some friends are off to the Sydney Quilt Show. I'm really looking forward to it this year. I have a bunch of people to catch up with, some workshops to do and of course shopping. Not that I need anything but it's nice to look.
Oh ! and I have a quilt hanging in the quilt display. It's one of 400!! This is the biggest hanging they have ever had in Sydney.
I'm also going back on Saturday just in case I missed something...haha
 
This is my quilt "Loulou". If you see her let me know what you think...
 
 
Below is a close up of the custom quilting I did on her. When I had finished this quilt top I was really disappointed with how bland the grey fabric looked. I was inspired by quilting that I saw at Green Fairy Quilts , and tried something new. Once I had quilted one section of the grey I was in love with it. The quilting brought the fabric to life.  
 
Before I go to the show I needed to get some work done. Below is an all over quilting on Noeline's quilt.
 
 
 
And this Star Wars quilt is Sarah's. It's for her big boy who is turning 9.
 
 
Both quilts were done with the same all over design "Bayside".
 
Today I'm having a break from quilting. I do have the next one loaded up but I have a sore shoulder so I thought it best to give it a couple of days off.
 
I'll be back with a show recap in a couple of days...
 
Happy Quilting
Leanne xo
