Well a very busy day was spent on Saturday with Irene Blanck’s new quilt launch and display.
I had great fun getting the classroom ready to display the quilts. and l must extend my thanks to James at The Gisborne Flower Shoppe who not only provided the flowers but also allowed me to pull apart his shop to get props for the day.
A steady and regular stream of lookers passed through the door so thankyou to those people who called in for a look and a spend.
So l thought you might like to see some photos.
This pic is of one of Irenes new quilts called Melon, Lime and Bitters. This pattern is in one of Irenes new forms of quick and easy patterns called “Eye Candy”
The grey quilt on the left (yep didnt think to take a pic straight on) is another newby called Miz Kelly. Yep named after me…it has taken a lot of nagging to get one named after me. My only concern is that Irene keeps mentioning 50 shades of Grey (for goodness sake there is only 3) so l dont know what she is on about????????
The room looks great l think…..
and of course a lot of the older quilts were on display this one is Auntie Green……
Mosaics always does well with the customers……for the bird lovers……
Spring time Promise one of Irenes not finished quilts… was so successful that it will now have to be finished and not thrown into the cupboard abyss…….
and there was nibbles, apparently the meringues were great………it was yum and l great fun making the bits, a surprise for Irene.
So it was all good and l was ever so glad to get my shoes off, have a Bacardi, and lie on the couch…….and then l had to unpack the car aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh.
Forgot to mention all of the patterns are available from the shop.
Thanks Irene for making such great quilts……….a great focus on quilts… boom.
