Fun, fun, and more fun...had a great time, however was absolutely exhausted by 5.30pm.
Here is the quilt that I entered in the show
Won't be showing any of the quilts on the internet as this would be classed as publishing another quilter's work. The quilts this year were of a really high standard and I did a couple of hours White Glove duty and had a really good chance inspecting them very closely. Really enjoyed this...amazing talent out there.
Then I went shopping...tried restraint this year because I really do not need a lot of things.
However, found (and bought) some Full Line stencils and a blue Pounce Pad for marking designs on light fabric
One of the stencils
Then got carried away and did some trapunto...my last attempt was a bit woeful, I must say. Have acquired a different water soluble thread since then and tried again. This time used bobbin fill in the bobbin and that worked fine. Also used 2 layers of cotton batting this time to make it worth my while. This turned out much better, almost a bit too puffed up and for me. I reckon Polyester batting would probably have been better for a softer feel. Need much more practice on this but am getting there.
Sewing Buddies Australia. They have a fairly good range and these stencils are not too expensive. Postage should be super cheap as they are light like feathers.
All in all, a very productive day
