Friday night I had a phone call from my friend Lynne, ‘Would I like to go to the Australian Quilt Convention in the city the next day?’ I knew the show was on but had ruled it out as too far away, ugh I hate agoraphobia!!!! Anyway Lynne wasn’t going until midday, which is far more doable than early morning for me, so I said I’d think about it. I woke up the next morning & thought bugger it, I’m going!!!!
I drove up to Lynne’s & her dh drove us into town & dropped us at the door. First up I couldn’t believe how gorgeous the building is.
I took lots of pics of the quilts & here are a few of my faves. I hope the owners don’t mind me sharing them.
As always I was drawn to the pictorial quilts. There were also some beautiful quilts with pictorial blocks but I couldn’t do them justice showing a tiny pic.
Of course Lynne & I also forced ourselves to look at all the quilt vendors. :-)))))
I’ve been drawn to the ‘Bliss’ range of fabrics. I’ve seen quite a few projects using them on other blogs & I really, really wanted some so I was on the look-out. I asked at a couple of likely stands but they’d sold-out, then I got lucky. A lovely 10 pack of fq’s & a jelly roll.
Plus this yummy little charm pack.
I also bought this beautiful book I’d seen online, & I managed to pick up a couple of Quilting Arts specials at bargain prices. All in all a great day.
Thanks Lynne :-)))
