Here are Debbie (the quilt's creative director), Elizabeth, and Ros...as 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.
