Cultural Weekend

Have you noticed a picnic rug? It was the best picnic rug in the whole of Sydney Myer Music Bowl....! Quilters would find excuses to make quilt for any occasions and I am one of those quilter!!! I like the idea of using a quilt for a picnic rug and this Amis style quilt was easy and quick to make. It was my first attemped at machine quilting.

It was the 50th. Anniversary of Sydney Myer Music Bowl. We had a lovely afternoon for it. We took picnic with us. We found a spot on the side where we could still hear the music and saw the screen above the stage. I just love the photo above, it was totally natural the way people just put their rugs down and sit or half sit or even lay down. Because we couldn't see the performance, I spent most of time people watching.
