Dargaville Quilt Show

Fiona, Margaret & I went to the Dargaville Quilt Show last Friday.
We meet at Fiona’s and I thought you’d like to see Fiona’s baby lambs,
it means Spring must be coming soon!


Fiona’s husband said I could help him
cut their tails off soon.
No thanks I’ll just take photos.

OK on to the quilts now.
I just took a few photos, there were a lot of quilts at the show, and the venue was really nice,
so well done Dargaville Quilters.

This is an amazing quilt using different fabric and technique's,
sorry I couldn’t get a straight on photo.
 (the orange at the bottom is from the quilt displayed on the other side)



Here’s a detail from the border.
The fabric is folded into 3D origami Kimonos. 


Fiona really liked this one, and thought it could be a good way for her to use some of her
New Zealand fabrics.



There were several wallhangings on display made in this class. This was my favourite as the colours glowed.


I really liked this. The details are great. Click on the photo to enlarge it and have a look at the details; keys, woven baskets, tattoo, shells the more you look the more you see.
 (on my computer I have to click on photo, and then click again on the photo that comes up to get an enlarged view, so try this if you only get a small photo when you click) 


These wall hangings were really nice, this is just one of the feature blocks.
I’m sure they will be appreciated at the Hospital.


After the Quilt Show we had a bit of retail therapy with Country Dawn (who said they are thinking of moving into a shop in town). Then at the Dargaville Sewing Centre (Janome) which has moved to a bigger shop on Normandy St.

When we returned to Fiona’s the chickens were out, but they didn’t like having their photo taken and ran away.

PS: tutorial for the 3D Bow Tie Block we demo'ed at Club Day, should go on tomorrow and then Show n Tell from Saturday after that. Bye
