Excitement is growing here at Quilts In The Barn!!
Its only 3 weeks till we open the barn doors on what is shaping up to be an amazing exhibition.
Featuring the quilts of Marg Sampson-George
( an amazing teacher from the Blue Mountains in Sydney) and her students,
there has been many sneak peaks flashing around Instagram
and other social media, as many continue to progress towards finished quilts to display.
The lovely Jean, and Liz, along with Marg are the main organisers behind this exhibition.
These 3 ladies have stitched their little fingers off over the Christmas break
to make a stunning raffle quilt, which was hand quilted by Trish Harper,
that one very lucky person will win.
Raffle tickets are selling fast, and they can be found in many quilt shops,
both here in Victoria and other states.
The list can be found on the back of the flyer.

During my lovely restful time over the Christmas break,
l decided to get a head start on some stitching. Seeing as l didn't have my
complete collection of fabric with me, l decided that these lovely
Laundry Basket fabrics l had brought with me were the perfect beginning,
to be added to along the way.
So l got busy with my rotary cutter, and before l knew it,
l had some lovely strips ready for sewing.
And not long after, lovely piles of Four patches.
Using the strip piecing method, these sew up quickly.
l decided to make a love heart from my 4 patches, because l am in love with the colours!!
Below is a list of other bloggers who are also taking part in the QAL.
