The recent Easter holiday coincided with the Anzac commemorative long weekend. Taking advantage of this break in the normal work schedule, we headed to the high country of Victoria; destination Bright.
The leaves were beginning to show their splendid Autumn colours and in the crisp evening air we could see our breath.
One of the highlights of Bright is visiting the Sew Bright Alpine Quilting shop. There is always a smörgåsbord of fabrics, patterns and kits on offer.
I picked up some gorgeous corduroy fabric and an Amy Butler pattern, “The Liverpool”. You can glimpse a version of this shirt in blue in the photo above.
The Sew Bright Alpine Quilting shop also has an Aurifil Mako 12wt Embroidery Thread Club underway. You can contact owner, Angela Bradbury, for full details. Aurifil Thread Clubs are a great way to enhance your thread collection over time.
We would love to hear about your ‘bright’ ideas for a short break. Quilt shop destination optional but always appreciated.
