Spring Quilt Show and Kit Car Show Detling



today has been day two of the spring quilt show and day one of the kit car show. It was incredibly quiet in the halls which was a huge surprise considering how much is going on for the whole family. Lets hope many more of you make it tomorrow as it’s really is a good day out.
Don’t forget if you do come to the quilt show you can enter my free blog giveaway; all you have to do is hand me your name and address to enter. The prize will be a selection of yoyo makers or as we prefer to call them round here Suffolk Puff makers. Hopefully I will see you tomorrow.

The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.

Arts and Crafts Block of the Month



Today we have had a fabulous first day at the Spring Quilt Show at Detling near Maidstone in Kent. Last October saw the first quilt show at Detling and as a first time show it was OK but this time there have been sooo many more visitors that I’m sure if the numbers stay up over the weekend it will become a regular feature on the annual show calendar.
It was also great to see familiar faces and it is for familiar faces that I am writing this post, namely Anne and Brenda who signed up to both our block of the month quilts and I’m pleased to say are enjoying them and finding that it is running well (except the odd little teething problem on our behalf which we have now fixed…phew!) As I promised ladies this post is a picture of the Arts and Crafts quilt so that you can see exactly what is coming next.
I hope you continue to enjoy the BOM’s
warmest wishes

Ta dah! Here are the rest of the quilts which were displayed at Westpoint, Exeter. Many of these will be on show again at Detling, Maidstone, Kent. I am lucky enough to have seen the Kent display already and there are many more local additions which are simply superb. I will snap some shots of them and post MORE quilts this week. I hope you are enjoying the shows and finding inspiration for your next project.

I also know that many of you have been waiting for details of the free give away at Detling, so here goes… to enter, bring me your name and address to stand 23, Quilting Antics; with the words “I want my YOyo’s now!” and you will be entered into the draw, the winner of which will receive a selection of Clover Yoyo makers.

Look forward to meeting as many of you as possible
