A Long, Long Weekend Part 2 - The Quilt Show

Coonamble holds a quilt show each June Long Weekend, which coincides nicely with people visiting the area for the annual rodeo.

The setting is in what had once been a milk bar and there are a few of the original fittings still in place.

Coffee anyone?  I remember once we got lunch in a cafe in Junee and they were still using a coffee machine like this one.  That was only about ..........oh.... 20 years ago,.......OK, longer ago than I realised.

There are some talented ladies in the district, with some vibrant quilts on display.

I seemed to be drawn to the colourful scrappy quilts that have been rather labour intensive to create.

See what I mean.

Yep, yet another one. Gypsy Wife is a popular quilt to make.

Now, that seems a bit more realistic to complete.

I love the colours in this trip around the world.

I think I may recognise this quilt as belonging to Fairy Girl.  How good to see it on display.

I seem to be also drawn to plus quilts lately.

By now Mick was getting a bit toey, as time was marching on and we still had a bit of a way to travel, so we kept on our way.

More soon....
