Finished quiltlet

A few random things in today’s post. I went to the Quilt and Craft Show in Brisbane on Saturday. Lots of vendor stalls with many lovely things to look at and touch and drool over! The quilt display was amazing, and in fact there were so many that we didn’t get around to look at all of them. Clearly, more than one day is needed to make the most of it! Congratulations to two Gatton Quilters, Alison Green and Shirley Manley, who both won prizes. Here is a link to the Queensland Quilters page to see their quilts.
I finished a little quiltlet that I started last week and showed in a previous post (pattern from Modern Quilting magazine):

It looks lovely and fresh with a citrus-coloured binding:

I quilted it with straight parallel lines which suited the overall simple look.

The back was a plain white with just a little colour, and I put 2 corner pieces up the top to enable it to be hung easily as a wall-hanging.

It may be one I’ll put up for sale at the Art and Craft Fair I’m working towards in a short few weeks time.

It was so hot on Sunday that the doggies had to have a bath, so I have to show here how nice they look now, so they can see the drama was worth it!!
This is Chleo, our old lady:

and Haley, the puppy, now 8 months old, all shiny and sleek but with velvety black ears:.

These two photos were taken when I caught her in on my son’s bed this morning, trying to act innocently and convince me that she was allowed to be there:

And lastly, I just had to show this gift that my sister gave me for my birthday- isn’t it the cutest teapot with its colourful knitted cosy?!
