Quilty Treat.






















Yesterday was our group's big day out - a bus trip to visit "A Child's Christmas."












It was the Auckland Patchwork & Quilters Guild - Calico Christmas 2008 - Annual Exhibition.

Over the next few posts I will show you a sample of the Eye Candy on display and the quilts that took my fancy, ( some to keep as a starting point for future projects perhaps. ) To fit the theme for this year there was a display of old toys, so I'll show you that too.

That first quilt ids gorgeous! It looks like a Jane Sassaman design...?? The esecond made me laugh, because of how you put it side by side with the blurb about your group's big day out! Looking forward to more quilts.....

I LOVE the quilt with all the bright balloons. The colors are gorgeous.

I love the first quilt. I am guessing it did not win a prize, but it should have, it is beautiful.
Loved seeing the 'old' toys- some look young to me!! LOL.
