Early in June I went to the Sydney Quilt Market which is a trade show for retailers only. I had my first stand as a pattern designer under my name Sharon Keightley Designs. Very Exciting! I met with lovely people from all over Australia and got to know some of the other designers that were at the show. Everyone was very helpful and friendly, I am keen to do this again in November in Melbourne. I had a great time seeing the sites of Sydney, as believe it or not I had never been there before.
Here are some pictures of my stand and the sites of Sydney.
At night we were treated to a fabulous light show on all the buildings around the Opera House.
The Show was held in the overseas passenger terminal, we had a lovely view of the Opera House from here.
Other peoples holiday pictures are never that interesting, but I hope you have enjoyed these.
How to press a Flying Geese Border ? This is the question I was asked so I have done my best to answer as it is not exactly what you might be expecting to see. Read more to see how I pressed the seams to get nice flat intersections.
Making four Flying Geese units at a time is a great time saver, and a wonderful method. I love to oversize the units and trim them down to the correct size for perfect blocks. Read how I go about making these versatile units that I use in almost every quilt I make.
