The Australasian Quilt Convention

It was a glorious Autumn day when I set out to the Royal Exhibition Buildings for the quilt show.
 I have to say that apart for a few things, it was all pretty much the same as every year's show. Nevertheless it is fun to have it all in one place and at one time.
I think my favourite quilt on show was this one by Maria and Theodore Giannoukas.

 It was made up of tiny scraps of fabric
 This was part of a much larger quilt. Extraordinary detail.

We all know what this one is. It would take me years to make a Dear Jane. This one was made by Helen Wadsley.
Lots of Dots by Chris Jurd
I was very restrained and only bought some more pieces of woollen felt and a floor lamp for winter nights of stitching.
