Great day had by all

Last Saturday a group of ladies from my class in Swatragh went on a 'shop hop'. We left Magehra at 8 am on a bus and headed for Quilters Quest in Belfast. Here Yvonne had laid on tea/ coffee and scones when we arrived. we were show some beautiful quilts including a cuyrved rail fence, I must try this. Some ladies had a go on the long armer and I collected this quilt which Yvonne quilted for me. and yes we all bought fabric! we left with purchases goodie bags and much chattering. Next stop was lunch, soup and sandwiches in Carrick and there we went to Craft Womans World it was slightly disappointing as they charge more for cut pieces than what is on the roll. Won't go back there again. Then back in the bus and off to Ballyclare to Karen in Fiddlesticks. Here more tea coffee and cup cakes and shortbread to die for.
Yes we spent more money and another goodie bag. Here Karen demonstrated her Acquilt and many ladies purchased fabric that Karen then cut into various pieces for them.

Would you beleive it by this time it was tea time and we all headed back into the bus and ff for an evening meal in Templepatrick.

Arriving home at 9 pm I just about managed to unpack the purchases walk the dogs and fall into bed.

This quilt is one that can be seen in many magazines, really easy to do, great beginners quilt
