A special day with a special Quilt

Yesterday we were lucky enough to be invited to a special day, with a very special Quilt, by Bev and Linda. We went to Linda's to view the
The Chester County Criswell Quilt,
That is proudly owned by Sharon.(below on the run!!)

This quilt is just beautiful. We had a fantastic day with lots of fantastic ladies, catching up with friends we have not seen for a while and meeting lots of new friends, with gorgeous antique quilts to inspire us. There was lots of chatting and oohing and aahring.

 Lunch was an amazing feast and we all left there feeling like an afternoon nap with full belly's.
Please pop over to Linda and Sharon's blogs to see more photo's and read more about this stunning treasure. You may also make your own version of the quilt. For more info visit Sharon.

On the way home up the highway we took the opportunity to be "tourists" and stop and snap this lovely rainbow. Could not find that alusive pot but!!!!!

We had a great day, thanks Bev and Linda for thinking of us.
Remember Quilts in the Barn is not that far away. This amazing show donates all profits to Breast Cancer Research. So come along and enjoy yourselves while supporting a very good cause.
Raffle tickets are on sale now for a stunning quilt. Call into your local quilt shop or contact Linda for tickets.
We will be there Sunday for morning tea if anyone would like to join us!!! See you there.

  1. Oh how I wish I could have been with all of you! This quilt is so amazing. Interesting that many, many quilts that I am drawn to are those made in Australia. I think I need to come and visit!

  2. Hi girls, It was great to meet you last week (Sue-Anne from Wodonga). It was a fantastic day and I enjoyed seeing the quilt that inspired your quilt pattern.
