Friendship day

Today I went to the Tasmanian Quilt guild friendship day, I had a lovely day of stitching, shopping and chatting to other likeminded quilters . The theme of the day was Spring and Dear Jane. I was very excited to see other Dear jane quilts as it has helped me to keep going with mine.

The lady who owns this quilt did a talk all about Jane Stickle and the history of her life and THE original quilt. It was very interesting.

Pauline was there from calicocrossroads with her shop, I bought a few pieces of fabric for my DJ Quilt. I had never met Pauline before so it was nice having a chat with her.

I took lots more photos so I'll share them tomorrow
