Four Novocastrian Girls in the City

Today 15th Oct 2011, four Novocastrian Quilters got up early and drove to Sydney to present the 2012 Raffle Quilt to the NSW Quilters Guild who held their A.G.M. today.
Here are Debbie (the quilt's creative director), Elizabeth, and they are about to do some collective retail therapy at "Quiltsmith"....four Novocastrian girls can't go to Sydney without some essential, necessary purchases.

Then we were off to Burwood RSL for the NSW Quilters Guild AGM where we had been invited to unveil the 2012 Raffle Quilt and showcase some of our work.
On the way as we took the tourist  route it was amazing where you might find quilting inspiration.

We were treated to a very impressive showcase of "Men who Quilt"

I just loved this quilt and when I got talking to its creator, Anthony, it turned out that he was from the Central Coast too!!! I just HAVE to make one.

And this is how we ended the day....thanks for driving Debbie!

Happy Quilting
