But I enjoyed the quilts on display and ran into Shez, Barb and Ann, so it was a pleasure to see some familiar faces. Photos were allowed for private use, so here we go!!
Just loved this one, kangaroo in Aussie fabrics
with a butterfly nose!!How cute is that??
these are both beautiful!
this was HUGE!! Loved the colours!
this was from an 11 meter quilt made by a NZ quilter, she made one block a day in her 60th year, I liked this saying.
the info about her and the quilt
part of the quilt
one walk way in the quilt display
a variation on the good old clamshells, beautifully made
this is blurry I am sorry, taken in a hurry between bodies!!An amazing pixilated quilt, taken from a photo of an adopted child from Africa.
another quilt made one block each day for a year
I do not fully understand how it was made but the explanation is here.
this one is all done by hand, and over time using fabric scraps
I could have taken so many more photos, but restrained myself!! It was a great show to go and look at. I did have a look at the traders but it was very crowded and after begin told by one woman I had touched the pattern she was going to buy I decided to call it a day.
The back of the Exhibition Buildings, it is an amazing building,inside and out.
and the trees in the park next to the building...just starting to drop their leaves.
The train trip home was long as someone on the train in front of us was an unruly passenger and had to be removed by the police. We sat in Footscray station for ages and were 30 mins late getting into Geelong, then we had to get off our train and wait for the next one to get to Geelong South. But all was good I had some stitching so the time passed fairly quickly The Supervisor was waiting for us when we got home so I took him on a walk to the beach.
a little different weather that yesterday. But the cobwebs got blown away!
Hubby has dinner sorted and the pizza has arrived so I am off to eat while it is hot.
Have a great weekend.
