Finishing touches..

.. were being put on several quilts at last Saturday's sewing to complete them in time for Castlemaine Applique Group's first ever exhibition.

Merri was sewing the binding on Civil War Bride (pattern by Corliss Searcy).

Ann was also sewing a binding on, "Clamshells" is a colourful quilt, but the backing is - well what can one say - very bold!

And here is a little peak at the beautiful quilting done on it by our dear friend, Helen Hayes.

And I was doing the last few stitches on the hanging sleeve of 19th Century Baskets (pattern by Di Ford-Hall)

We would love to see you at the exhibition if you can make it.

Until next time....



  1. I wish you weren't on the opposite side of the planet, the quilts look wonderful. I hope you post photos of all the quilts during or after the show.

  2. looking forward to catching up with you all tomorrow and can't wait to see those beautiful quilts hanging next month.

  3. Looks like everyone is in for a real treat!

  4. Hi Meghan. The inspiration on this blog always just blows me away. I wanted to share a quilt that was inspired by Phebe. Is there any way to contact / email Di? Thanks .
