This weekend I managed to head out to the annual quilt festival held at Stonestead (about 40 minutes north of Wellington). At this time of year the weather is usually lovely so it's a great day in the sun. I thought I'd share a few of the quilts on display - my group of quilting friends put in a good effort with lots having at least one quilt on show.

I hope you enjoyed those - they were of course just a small portion of the quilts on display.
I'm leaving for QuiltCon today which is very exciting (I'm spending a few days beforehand in San Francisco). If you're going as well, I hope to see you there. If not, fear not, because I've scheduled a few posts in advance to keep everything running smoothly here (and my sister Jenny is still on board, looking after Ivy and Ralph and putting together the Caturday posts as usual). I'll definitely be telling you all about it when I get back (and I'll be sharing my adventures as they happen on instagram as @adrianneonthewindyside).
