I° "Il Corso del Corso" Quilt Show

Last week, our group decided to organizer a little quilt exposition to share with other people our handcrafts. Daniela e Fabio, sewing machines shop's owner, gave us the possibility to use their shop, Friday in the evening, as location.
This is the result:

This is the quilt that we have made, one block each of us, to represent the birth of our group.

Shop window with the event notice.

And this is the "parade":

Some ladies of the group.

It has been very interesting to see a lot of our quilts, made with different styles, different techniques and levels.
I hope that this is the first of many meetings.

III Quilting Day FVG 2012

There was, last Sunday in Trieste, the III Quilting Day of Friuli Venezia Giulia (our area in Italy).
The location was the halls of S. Giusto Castle and there were about 220 quilters.
A lot of workshops,  two quilt shop areas (Volpe Rossa e Filomania), a lottery with nice prizes, interesting "show and tell" and.....a very good catering!

The event's logo on the big big cake!

Our party from Monfalcone (I'm the first down on the left).

During this event we  have decided to form a quilters'group :


We will have to do something good!

Luxury is....... new design wall

I have hung the sheet on the wall of the upstairs landing (I haven't a sewing room!)
and it is not too bad place.

now, I can look at my BOM-WIP and decide for the best
 (infact I can see that I will have to make some lighter roofs)

or laying out the blocks of my next project and preview the design and colors arrangements.

It's incredible how this simple "tool" can change my "quilting life"!

......and given!!!

Last Sunday was my grandnephew fourth birthday and my present for Zeno was this colored quilt!
It is colorfull and very "animated", not on my style, but perfect for a lively child!!!

Zeno loves his first quilt!
