Sarah's Sampler (1855)

Yesterday I went to the Melbourne craft and quilt fair at Melbourne Exhibition Centre with my lovely friends Shelly and Lyn.  We had a great time catching up and looking at all the new fabrics,quilts etc on display. We stopped for a quick break and as I was walking back to our table with my coffee who should spot me but Sue from Kiwi kids well that made my day it was absolutely fabulous to catch. Then after another couple of aisles I spotted Sue having a coffee with Marg more great was that.

 As you all know I have completed a couple of projects and also started a few new ones to keep me busy ( Happy hehe..).I really had no intention of purchasing anything new but when my eyes spotted Sarah's Sampler Quilt displayed in all her glory I Love the pattern and wanted to take her home. Shelly had the same thought and we both went straight over to Marg Low's stand to purchase a copy .....
