Not a patch on it!

It's no secret that I'm no sewer, I've said it many times before.

It's also little surprise that I am prone to over-reaction.

Put those two seemingly disparate statements together and we have the moment when I witnessed a barrage of Quilting Genius and quite literally fell off my chair.

Come now, I hear you cry, what on earth are you doing on the floor? Surely you are stretching the point a bit? And how are you typing this post from down there?

The aforementioned Quilting Genius, you see, came in the form of Spotlight's Tri-National, Second Annual, Very Exciting Quilting Expo this weekend.

The event was held in all Spotlight stores and gave some of our avid quilting customers (and patchwork newbies) a chance to show off some of their skills and share some advice, tips and tricks with others.

The highlight (and impetus of me kissing the floor somewhat unceremoniously) of the Expo was our "Show Us Your Best Work" competition, in which YOU were invited to bring in a quilt or patchwork project and win yourself a fantastic ELNA sewing machine (bazinga!).

The swanky ELNA Elina 21. You know you want it.
The quality of the entries was absolutley astounding. I'm not sure how else to describe them, so I created an album on our facebook page. Leave us a comment and tell us which is your favourite?

 Here's mine... shh. I'm not supposed to play favourites.

 Did you enter in Quilt Expo? Send us your photos!
