The last few Gathering pics

Leanne Beasley is my favourite designer, I have made alot of her projects and it was such a thrill to meet her, it was even more exciting when she said how much she loved my post card quilt. Leanne designed this quilt some time ago and its in her book Romancing the Road Trip. I was so happy to have this photo with Leanne.
Here is Sarah and Leanne with Sarah's beautiful noticeboard from the vignette magazine.
Leanne sat at our table and chatted with us all and showed us a few new techniques on paper piecing.
Here is leanne's hexagon quilt, its truly amazing and I loved seeing all the beautiful fabrics Leanne used. She even did fussy cutting in some blocks using Rosalie's new fabric. I am going to attempt my own hexagon quilt, who would like to join me?
I told you I didn't get much stitching done, look at this. I think I maybe did 50 stitches in all. There was just so much to take in and things to see. I couldn't concentrate on stitching.

I have done a few more stitches since last Saturday, I'll share that with you later.

Thankyou for sharing the photos of wonderful gathering you recently attended.
I'd love to join you in doing Leanne's hexagon quilt ... but I think mine will only make the size of a table runner - I'm also trying to do the quilt from Vignette and Down in the Garden... so a table runner will be it!
Happy stitching, P
