Back to what this blog is about - our National Quilt Festival held in July at Kearsney College near the beautiful Valley of a Thousand Hills in Natal. I decided to enter my "Swoon" Quilt, a pattern from Camille Roskelley which I had been making for a few months and where I had free motion quilted in the negative spaces. The fabrics I used were from Kaffe Fassett's collection and I used Aurifil thread to do the quilting. I was very happy with the result and really did not expect to win a 3rd place ribbon for my effort. Here is a pic of the quilt hanging in the exhibition.
And of course yours truly!
A few close-ups of the quilting.
My sister Barbara and I attended three classes at the festival. Oh my word, I now have to find time to complete what we started in these classes but they will get done and I'll put them on my blog!
Here are a few photos in the beautiful grounds of Kearsney College in Botha's Hill, Kwa-Zulu Natal .

Thank you for visiting today. Please come back tomorrow and see pics of my wholecloth quilt which I have now at last finished!
