A Finish and A Mystery

Festival was awesome!.. KwaZulu-Natal quilters guild hosted the 18th South African National Quilt Festival from 3rd to 7th of July -  5 days of classes, lectures and vendors, with 6 international teachers, and 25 national teachers. The quilts on show were incredible. We had visitors from around the country and overseas. Kearsney College in Bothas Hill was the perfect venue.  We get to host every 11 years, so It was something to look forward to and it exceeded my expectations, I loved every minute. Last week we had some rain and already I have seen new growth, soon we will be mowing again. I have quilted, bound and labeled my Life of Plenty quilt.

While deciding on my next project I finished a small quilt.. Noah's Ark, I had done the stitching in 2011. I have palpitations every time I look in my UFO basket. I won those four luscious little layerings at the tombola stand at festival.

I am doing Kaaren's mystery quilt along - 

16 house blocks done

I have completed the first part

If you would like to quilt along go to Kaaren's blog The Painted Quilt and join the fun!

Blue moon last night, did you see it and make a wish - I did. Next time round will be in 2018 when there will be two blue moons..January and March, so you will then get to make two wishes.;))
