FNSI and Chatting with Leanne Beasley!

A little bit of stuffing was all that I managed. I had hoped to stitch this up at NOTYQ this afternoon but was too interested in what Leanne Beasley had to tell us! 
I was then too busy chatting with Leanne and others.
Leanne is a wonderful speaker and I could have sat 
there for ages listening to her. 
 Member's quilts of Leanne's designs.
I got to have a photo of my quilt with Leanne.
This is the label on my quilt. I had my photo taken with Leanne when I had basted my quilt and was ready to 
start the quilting. We were at a stitchery day 
in Yarragon in 2007. I started my quilt in January 2006 and finished it in July 2007. 
It was my first hand pieced and hand quilted quilt.

You can always stuff that toy later, but you can't talk to Leanne Beasley at the drop of a hat. Lucky you!

Lovely quilt, Christine! And what a great way to label it with a photo of you and Leanne! That is so clever. Wish i could have been there to hear her speak. It sounds like she is quite the speaker!
