Post re FNSI ( A little late) and the Sydney Quilt Show

Where is time going to? It is past the shortest day ( Hurray!!) and almost the end of June. I just remember us coming home from our holiday to Victoria at the end of April-- and lo and behold-- it is now almost the end of June.

I joined in Wendy's FNSI last Friday and realised that I have not done a blog post for it and it is now Wednesday. So this is what I have done. It is only partly finished.

Embroidered Heart cushion with new French General Fabric
I am making this cushion with the new French general fabric that is just out. It is the same pattern for the Blue Cushion I have done in the past. There is more embroidery to sew on that and of course the back to be sewn on too. So this is what I got up to on the FNSI. Thank you Wendy, for hosting it.
Last Thursday, I went to the Sydney Quilt Show at Glebe Island. As usual, I spent some money ( a good amount, actually)-- but forgot to take photos of what I bought-- so that will have to be for another post. My favourite shop is Hatched and Patched and caught up with Anni and Peter there. Spent the most there, as ususal.

I have been collecting red and white fabric for ages now-- I am sure I will have enough fabric for half a dozen red and white quilts now-- did not stop me buying more though. I loved the red and white quilt section at the Quilt show-- here are a few of them.

This was so intricately done-- amazing

EPP hexagons-- fabulous
I will have to visit other FNSI bloggers -- so I had better be off now.
