Capital Quilters' Exhibition is on next weekend 3-4 October

Good news - we're back at COVID Level 1 (our lowest level) and our quilt show is going ahead next weekend.  

I'm really looking forward to seeing my Glitter quilt hanging, and then getting to take it home again.  Although I finished Glitter back in April 2020, I haven't used it on our bed yet, or shared it on social media.  It was to be my main entry in the QuiltNSW Sydney Quilt Show, but that got pushed back twice, and is now cancelled for 2020.  Our own shown in Wellington has been pushed back once, but we're really hopeful it can go ahead next weekend.  

Strangely enough when I accepted the 3-4 October dates for our postponement, I totally forgot that I had booked another little holiday.  So I won't be there for the setup day on Friday (how convenient!) or Saturday.  Instead I'll be visiting the Taupo Quiltmakers' and Aotearoa Quilters' exhibitions in Taupo on Friday.

It will be nice to see how other guilds run their exhibitions, and to meet other quilters from around New Zealand.  

Here's our new poster for our Capital Quilters exhibition.  If you live in NZ I hope to see you there on Sunday.  I expect to be there most of the day.  We have four great merchants lined up:

Stitchbird Fabrics

Quilters' Lane

Made Marion Crafts

Yarn Therapy. 

I think we're all looking forward to visiting the merchants.  I've certainly had lots of questions about them.  As for the quilts, you can follow Capital Quilters on Instagram or Facebook.  There will be plenty of photos shared there during the weekend.  

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below:

Having a little holiday and visiting a quilt show sounds positively normal and awesome! Enjoy!

I love your Glimmer in a limited color palette. I made one a few years ago and it is a scrappier version. It is fun to see different versions of a pattern.

I'm excited to see the finished photo of your Glimmer! How exciting--two quilt shows in one weekend!!!

very nice!
I wish the people here had that attitude of get rid of it and get it out of here for the virus.

I've seen many versions of Glitter but yours is my all-time favorite. I love your color palette! Looking forward to seeing it exhibited.
