Craft and Quilt Show Melbourne

I had a wonderful day out with Marg at the Craft and Quilt Fair at Jeff's Shed on Thursday. We were very brave and negotiated the use of Myki cards, no choice really as there are no paper tickets from Gisborne any more, they worked perfectly so no worries there! I loved the quilt display and of course have taken too many photos but it is hard to know where to stop!! I have not put them all up here I promise!! Lol!!
Loved this frog quilt....

and this NZ one inspired by a holiday to New Zealand, the lady who made it designed it herself too! Very clever!

Detail on the kiwi.....

and the silver fern.....beautiful work....love the colours too...reminiscent of greenstone....

have a look at this one, great colours....

this appealed to me, postage stamp quilt...lots and lots of little pieces!!

This one was hand pieced...just beautiful...

this was the winner of the display.......tiny half inch hexagons I think...beautiful....

loved this one....

the 5000 Poppies ladies are there creating knitted, crochet or felted poppies for their display next ANZAC Day...

this one has shirting fabric in it, great for our group challenge......

some beautiful quilts...Elizabeth something???

Loved this one made in memory of the quilters mother who has passed.....a flower quilt...fussy cut..1 inch, 2 inch and three inch squares...you can see the detail below..just beautiful...Oh no!! I have just realised it is sideways!!!
I tried again...this is better!!


amazing quilting and detail...

also really loved these Sentinels...I hope I have the name right - Marg and I purchased one each to go home and play with....great idea!
I had a very happy and productive day - found some fabric for the next Aussie Hero's quilt and got to talk with lots of lovely people....
Off to have a play!!
Happy sewing!

Wow such variety! The New Zealand one is very clever, still I had to say that, because I am a New Zealander!
