With You With Me With them

was the name of the Quilt Exhibition I went to today with Tracee, up at Kyneton.
The idea behind the exhibition was - "a creative way to pay tribute and draw public attention to our modern returned service personnel and some of the challenges they face after returning home."
As usual I took heaps of photos so might have to spread them over several days!
I was really happy to see Aussie Hero Quilts represented and many of their wonderful quilts on display. We even got to meet David who is in the Army, he was talking to people today and showing them his quilt he received while serving in Baghdad.

There were several quilts by Rachaeldaisy..they were stunning!!
her version of clamshells


Love the colours in this

a close up of all the prairie points!




this last one had an amazing pieced backing, it made the quilt double sided. I will put up more quilt photos tomorrow
After viewing the exhibition, Tracee and I had lunch at a pub in Piper Street,
Hee hee!! I look like I am wearing an umbrella...well it was sunny!! We had a wonderful lunch, fish and chips with an amazing salad for Tracee and beetroot risotto with goats cheese for me! Yum!! We had an afternoon cuppa with Marg and Donna and then I had to head back home,

the sun was heading down as I drove thru Geelong. I had a wonderful day, thank you Tracee.
Happy sewing.

That sounds like a perfect day! Love that sunset. It's so interesting to see both Aussie quilts in general and the Aussie Hero Quilts especially, since I do American Hero Quilts. You have some gorgeous examples in your pictures, and I might take that star and cross idea to make on for one of ours. =) I've never seen the prairie points used in a whole quilt like that - how unique! Thanks for sharing, I look forward to seeing more.
