Show Quilts and On the Road Again.

Hello dear blogging friends and Followers.
On the road again. Not going to the steamy tropics nore the snow capped mountains at this time of the year. It is nearly Spring so heading West and along the way we should see an abundance of native flora and fauna that inhabits the regions we will be travelling through enjoying the stunning natural beauty of our countryside.The weather is looking good at the moment so looking foreward to some sunny days.         Here we are with the caravan.

 Travelling with friends who have a Camper.
Our Golden Wattle floral emblem of Australia. We will see a many flowering bushes along the way.
Our Flora .
All of Europe's area fits into Australia with room to spare to fit in other countries so it takes us a long time to travel around our stunning landscapes with so many truly amazing things to see.

I came across these quilts They were the best of show quilts from the State Quilting Guild shows Australia 2011.
This  is Freedom by Helen Godden  (Preston -Dreaming).
This is the red hooded black Cockatoo the Gang Gang and they come from inland Australia and through to the coastal forests. A native of Australia.

An a amazing Quilt.

  Here is a photo of the black  Cockatoo from Inland Australia. We will see these on our travels. Their black feathers are lovely and shiny. We have had some flying around here overhead lately away from where they usually gather.

This next quilt The Travelling Friendship Quilt began in Maleny Queensland. Australia in January 2011 was sent to Australian States and Territories. The blocks made by many groups was sent from group to group, friend to friend within each State. A suitcase full which were then made into the 4 metre square Friendship Quilt.

All these 60 quilts from the Quilting Guild Inc of New South Wales displayed at the Sydney Quilt Show.  Celebrating 30 yrs on June 13th 2011.

I have saved some projects to post on here while I'm away if I can connect to the internet.
I am not taking my machine with me this time. I have some knitting, embroidery and applique to do so shouldn't miss my Janome too much.
Have a happy sewing week.
