Table Runner, Scrap Fun and Quilt Show

 
I made this table runner with a bit of an Australian flavour.
 
 
Close-up of the quilting...
 
I try to follow Bonnie Hunter's method of organising fabric scraps and have a large box of 
1 1/2" squares. With these I have made already 60 Nine Patch blocks and I may end up doing Dancing Nine Patches quilt. 
For now I am happy just trying out new designs, using my scraps and if nothing comes of it they will not be UFO's but simply experiments.
And of course there is a quilt on my HQ18 which I am taking my time as well for the sake of practice and accuracy rather than trying to finish as fast as possible a project. 
 
 
I have a couple of "Honey Buns" pre-cuts and added a few of my own fabrics to came up with this.  Not sure if I will add more blocks or leave as it is but whatever happens it will be a good piece to practice my quilting skills.
 
 
This year's the theme at Quilts In the Barn exhibition was Dutch Chintz Quilts.
My photos did not came out too good but here are some.  The first two pictures were my friend Lynne's quilts and as usual she makes beautiful quilts no matter what style they are.
 
 
 
Loved the quilting here....
