new quilts for Alberton beds {final days}

Only one more day left to see the show!
I popped back to our Monday Modern quilt show at Alberton today. 
It's quite exciting seeing your own quilts on display...

 Modern Buzz Saw quilt

I couldn't resist a pic of the nursery!

Summertime Chains quilt
-a scrappy quilt using a controlled colour range

my 1/4 Log Cabin quilt in the sewing room
-using up lots of little leftovers of AMH fabrics

Alberton also do 'high teas' out on the front verandah

We are spending a couple of hours Saturday & Sunday with activities for children & demonstrations
Here's a pic of me demonstrating sewing down binding on a quilt 
- along to the accompaniment of a wonderful pianist, a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon! 

my Building Blocks quilt in one of the big bedrooms

and to top it all off, afternoon tea for us too.
And if you can't get to the show, here's the link to the Monday Modern flickr pool to see more pics

I've got a couple of scrappy finishes in the show 
so I'm also linking up with Cynthia for 'oh scrap' here


  1. The quilts look great. Love your Gypsy Wife quilt :)

    1. Thank you Linda! We were very lucky, having such a lovely house available to display our quilts. And it’s a nice change from halls etc. Linda

  2. Very fresh colors! Esp. love Summertime Chains.

  3. So fun to see our quilts being displayed. I love that thrill of 'oh, I made that'.:)

    1. Hi Audrey, Lots of stories to tell in our quiltmaking, reflecting who we are and it's so lovely to be able to share! And, I felt I’d gone right back in time, sitting there yesterday stitching away!

  4. The show looks lovely Linda, thanks for posting these photos. Sadly I have missed out on a visit this year to to back issues - next time!!

  5. What a great place for a show! I'll check the link later.
