Upcoming event: "Quilts on the Downs."

Flyer completed for "Quilts on the Downs' Inaugural quilt show in September. The quilt show is being held to showcase some amazing works of art from quilters who live in our community and  have not entered their quilts into a competition before. This quilt show will not be competitve and is open to amatures as well as experienced quilters. It is being held at Heathton Manor in the commuity of Windsor Downs which is a wonderful garden estate in the lovely Hawkesbury area. There will be no limitations on the number of entries by each quilter, the quilts will not be judged but visitors will be asked to vote for a viewers choice. The quilt and owner, with the most likes will recieve a prize. There are a number of stalls holders, including a trade table, vintage sewing collectables, vintage linen, as well as our featured guest quilter Chris Jurd and Marg Low will have patterns, kits and goods for sale. Leanne from Fortune and Fairies will have a stand with fabric for sale and also on display will be the Sweet Sixteen machine. Our nominated charity will be Staffy Rescue, a charity close to our hearts.
Take time out to sample our homebaked goodies that will be for sale to enjoy with tea and coffee. As Sunday is fathers day, all fathers that attend on Sunday will be admitted free.

"Deauville" when I first saw it published in Quilters Companion, I wanted to make this quilt, had all the pattern prepared, still not made, but what a wonderful opportunity to  be able to purchase raffle tickets and be in with a chance to win.
