Rocheberie Schoolhouse Quilters

As usual, it was a fabulous day with the Rocheberie Schoolhouse Quilters... they really know how to organise a fabulous quilty day. Ferret was the speaker but she asked us not to use photographs of her quilts on t'internet unless we can do 'low resolution'... I don't even know what that means, let alone how to do it, so I better not post any. Fair to say though..... she was a very good, clear speaker... amusing, very... very... and a bit more 'very' talented and inspiring free-motion quilter .... just how we like 'em! wonderful lecture.
So I share with you a few pictures of my favourite bit of the day... "Show & Tell".... It's great how the Rocheberie ladies handle Show & Tell actually... there's a couple of lovely ladies who hold up the quilts at the front of the room....
... then the maker of each one shouts up... "that one is mine" followed by a brief explanation about it, any story behind the making of it and they tell us who the quilt is for... lots are for the Linus project
... some are from workshops, some are their own designs.....
There are loads too... all very inspiring... it remains my favourite part of quilty gatherings... I love to see what other people are up to, don't you?
