Clunes! – part 4

Sunday morning dawned cold but with clear skies, perfect for the Farmers’ Market held in main street .

After a lovely wander around, we made it to our venue just in time for morning tea – perfect timing!I don’t like rhubarb, but I have to say Jane’s rhubarb cake is The Best!  Made sure I didn’t miss out!

Sue was prepping for a new project with just a little bit of Liberty!

Christine had some of her pieces out on the table next to ours

Carolyn attached some of the hexies she’d been making

Jill is hand quilting 

Love the quilt and the backing!

Gabby is hand quilting too

Adele is hexie-ing (check out those bags!)

Donna was sorting fabrics for a new block

Rose was making a mini “Dilly Bag”

Ann had fun with free motion embroidery

Kerry was starting an appliqué block

Up on the stage we had a plethora of quilts 

Jean put the binding on this quilt

This is Denise’s first hand pieced block

Leanne picked up this never-been-used Ted Baker bag at the op-shop!

GJ borrowed a machine to make a pin cushion or two, then people started “borrowing” GJ to make theirs as well!

Jane finished her little girl

I prepped lots of hexies

Surely it’s time for lunch?

and maybe a little stroll.  At Gallery 5 Christine’s students put on a wonderful display of their work

and in the town a pop-up shop for quilts!

Watch out if you’re back late for afternoon tea; there’s not much left!

Maree had fun with her free motion embroidery

Nancy Lee finished her “Dilly Bag”

Jane made good headway on the background for her free motion embroidery piece

(Apologies if I’ve missed anyone)

Then all these beautiful creations were packed away, fond farwells said to new friends and old, and a mass exodus of quilters left the delightful township of Clunes…….until next year.

We shall be back!!

  3. Annie Gunn says:

    Wow, what a fantastic few days you had. Thanks so much for the daily updates on Clunes. Bet your head is spinning with new ideas and the wish list could perhaps be a little longer? Some very clever people around, yet again. I feel blessed to be around at a time when so many old crafts are making a comeback.

  4. Karen Goad says:

    so very many photos that you have shared with us today – makes one feel like they are there! I love that chain of hexies in one photo that you share and gives me an idea for a quilt I am making.

  5. Kyle says:

    Wow! Wish I had been there. You must be exhausted!

  6. Karen Ruta says:

    What a wonderful time you had! Clunes is so pretty. Free motion embroidery has not made it to my part of Canada yet, it looks intriguing. Are the flowers attached by machine? Is that the free motion part? Love the look!

  7. What fun! And such beautiful work!

  8. Chas Spain says:

    Clunes must have felt like a magic wand had waved over the town – so many beautiful things. I wish I could follow you and the fairy dust you must leave in your wake!
