Eastern suburbs quilters.

Remember a few weeks ago I found out there was a quilting group that meets really close to my house? Well, last night I went along to the Eastern Suburbs Quilting Group to check it out. I took along my wedgewood quilt I am hand quilting and settled in for a night of meeting new people, ohhing and ahhing over their quilts, and getting some hand quilting done! It was a fantastic night that was over too quickly.

I thought I would share with you two of the quilts Bronwyn brought with her to the group, as I love her colour taste and quilting style! She kindly let me take some photos on my iphone of her projects - thanks Bronwyn!

Hand pieced curved nine-patch quilt in repro prints.

All the blocks sorted and ready to be pieced together.

A baby quilt. Beautiful!

Beautiful red ticking binding.

Thank you Bronwyn for letting me take these photos. Your work is very inspiring.

  1. Sam, I am so glad you have found a group of gals to hang out with. I so totally love mine that I wish everyone had a group.
    There are so many life lessons to be learned along with the sewing inspiration that is shared.
    I loved both pieces- tell her she did a great job!- cw

  2. I know how much you love retro fabrics, so I can see why those caught your eye. They are very beautiful, and having the group to meet with makes it all the more fun.

  3. Hi Sam,

    What a great idea making a quilt from your grandpa's shirts. And a quilting group...lovely like minded peopleness....:)

  5. Thanks guys, yeah I am over the moon about finally finding a group, and from everything I hear a good quilting group is worth their weight in gold :-) I'm excited! Sam xox
