A Rainy Day with Bloggers

Melbourne put on some mighty rain today but undeterred I drove to Cathy's place about 1.5 hours away (because of the torrents falling from the sky) to meet up with some bloggers, have some show and tell, stitch and eat. I'm in red on the left and then there was:
 Miriam Cathy our fabulous hostess, Maree all the way from Queensland, Chris Meredithe Merran and Cathy in the front who is new to quilting but very very good at it.

We must have spent 2 hours just doing show and tell before we settled down to a cuppa and some sewing.

That pink star burst is so tiny, you can see it  in the quilt above

Some of Cathy's stash (envy)
I learned new stuff, met really lovely, new people, ate chocolate and saw lots of fabulous quilts and works in progress. Thanks Cathy, it was great fun.


  1. What a lovely day you all had. Is there anything better than having a stitching day with some old and new friend? Somehow I like it even better when it's raining cats and dogs outside. So cozy ;).

  2. What fun! You are lucky to live in Australia, with so many very talented and creative quilt makers!

  3. Such gorgeous quilts and that fabric stash is amazing!


  4. Wasn't it a wonderful day (inside that is, the rain ouside was awful!!). So glad you could come MeliB. We must do it all again sometime. xo

  5. It was a lovely day! So great to meet new quilters (and bloggers!).

  6. Meeting new quilters is always so much fun, specially when there is such talent involved! Lovely show and tell.

  7. I've just popped over from Meredithe's blog .... you all produce such fabulous work - I am having serious quilt envy!
    Regards, Anne

  8. It was a Great Day & was Lovely to Meet you Melissa...I came away being all Inspired.

  9. Wow! What awesome quilts! Wish I could have joined you! It looks like a very fun day (out of the rain!)
