Jamberoo Retreat

A couple of weekends ago I went to the Sydney Guild annual Quiltaway at Jamberoo and saw some amazing quilts in progress.  These two blocks were made by Shirley Gibson whose work has to be seen to be believed.... my photos definitely don't do justice to her skill.  
These two blocks are reproductions of a quilt in the book which accompanied the recent display at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London..... and here I am planning on visiting in a few months.. which unfortunately will be several months after the display has well and truly finished..phooey!

I don't know how fast Shirley works but I suspect that this quilt will be on display in next year's Sydney Quilt Show so if you attend be sure to look for it.
