If it's the first Saturday of the month it must be quilting

February is supposed to be the hottest month of the year, yet here we are in Sydney shivering away in waaaay below average temperatures   Still it's perfect weather for quilting and being the first Saturday of the month, that means the Sydney branch of SCQuilters' monthly gathering.

I left my camera at home and had to rely on my phone, so the quality of the images is not the best. 

Have you noticed that most of the quilters have sensibly opted for warmer clothing?  Not this quilter.  There I sat in a sunny summer outfit and paid dearly by nearly freezing to death.

I was mighty tempted to grab this beautiful vintage hexagon quilt and make a bolt for the door.  A girl can get mighty desperate when she's cold.

Here is another beautiful quilt which I fantasized would go beautifully with my flimsy summer orange outfit.

I met Brenda Gael Smith of Twelve by Twelve fame.  I have been a fan of this talented group ever since I saw their exhibition in Brisbane a couple of years ago, so it was a pleasure to finally meet one of the artists.  

My day was complete when I arrived home to find that one of my dresses was chosen for an Etsy treasury.  It almost made me feel warm.
