Attention Wellington quilters

It's a big weekend for quilters in Wellington, New Zealand.  There's two quilt shows on this weekend - yes, two!!

 Firstly, there's this crazy bunch of ladies I know through Capital Quilters.  I don't know what possessed them to strip for this photo, but here they are.

These TOWRAGS produce amazing quilts, and they've made enough to fill historic Old St Paul's in Mulgrave Street.  Their show is on this Saturday and Sunday and I really encourage you to pop in for a look.  They tell me they will be wearing clothes, so you're safe.  Admission is only $6 - it's cheap!! Here's a link to find out more. 

They will be raffling off this gorgeous quilt, with proceeds going to Wellington Free Ambulance.

Secondly, it's the Stonestead Outdoor Quilt Festival on Sunday up at Te Marua, Upper Hutt.  I really  hope it doesn't rain, because I really want to see the quilts flapping in a gentle breeze and partake in a delicious Devonshire Tea.  I've got two quilts in the festival and want to see what else is on display.  Here's mine from two years ago.  I vowed to go bigger next time, and I have this year.

I've entered my two biggest quilts so I hope they have high enough ropes and they don't drag on the ground.  I'll report back next week with photos.

I LOVE the raffle quilt Wendy. I'm sure you'll have no trouble selling the tickets. The photo is fun, and those ladies look like they really enjoy life. :-)
Fingers crossed for the weather!!
