Rosewood Quilt Show

Although Saturday was so dismal with the rain & cold i had a great day out. Pammi & i headed out to Rosewood for the quilt show. Joy & Nikki joined us there for more fun & laughter. Also chatted to Cath who had a stall there. Lots of beautiful quilts there on display.
Love this hexagon quilt. The hexagons are all 1/2"
This is the label attached.
Olive was sitting here during the day piecing this stunning hexagon quilt. I forgot to ask how many she had pieced together already but i can tell you they are 1/2" hexagons.
Drunkards Path is another favourite of mine.
So many beautiful quilts on display. Just too many to photograph all so this is just a small selection to view. Also on display were other handcrafts by the Rosewood ladies but it was this bedspread that caught my eye.
All crocheted.

Happy Stitching,

Yes there were some beautiful quilts at the show. Olive didn't know how many hexagon where in her quilt. I didn't take my camera so I didn't get photos of the quilts that I loved. I know alot were appliqued ones. Next time will leave Denis at home and I can stay longer. LOL
