Quilt retreat

I came through to Birregurra yesterday to a quilt retreat with some of the Bellarine ladies, I did some geocaching on the way, which I relly enjoyed until I got the car bogged on the side of the road, luckily there was a dead bush nearby so I was able to get branches to shove u nder the wheel and after 5 attempts got back out on the road!! I can tell you my blood pressure was very high by then.
We are back at the old hospital, that has been converted to a B &B
There are lots of beautiful antiques and bits of furniture all around

Love this penguin
This is the little sitting room Sue and I are sewing in

Last night I was sewing tumbler blocks, this is  QFO from Seachange

And this morning I got it all finished. I went for a walk after lunch and found


the new quilt shop...small but has beautiful fabric and classes on offer.

I even found some bollards by the Primary School
This afternoon I finished the Spidey quilt, quilted and trimmed

The almost Chevron quilt is quilted and trimmed to. We have now had dinner and I am heading back to sew some more.
Happy sewing.

Where is the retreat and what size did your tumbler quilt finish at....
Oh what a nightmare getting bogged... So did you google ' ask the Leyland brothers'....
Glad you made it to the retreat...
