ACQ 13

Had a wonderful day at the ACQ 13 today, Donna drove us in - luxury!! I went to look at the exhibitions first, otherwise I get tired and don't look at the wonderful work! Just a few of the amazing quilts there at ACQ
Off we go....

most amazing quilt, so much detail

colour and bling!

just beautiful

amazing quilting!

painted on to white fabric then machine quilted - love this one!

made by a NZ quilter - amazing applique flowers

one of the twelve by twelve quilts - was drawn to a quilt in each colour section and they turned out to be all made by the same person.

love to know what was fascinating to look at!!

always love tea cups - another from the 12 x 12

loved this quilt, the leaves were made with wool rovings pulled out in a fine layer then held on with the quilting and some yellow hand stitches.

love the fishes here, embroidered on to a felt background I think


A Helen Godden quilt, painted on to black fabric, then machine quilted in different coloured threads, some metallic. In real life the blue was bluer.
