More ........... and some shopping

Just a couple more Quilts from the AQC held in Melbourne at the weekend

The quilting on these next two, well I will leave the words to you.

"Star Sign" by Phillipa Naylor

"Diamond Dust" by Phillipa Naylor

Apparently there is a duplicate block in this next quilt, can you see it?
I can't but I will keep looking :o)

"Dear Jane" by Helen Wadsley

If I wasn't making my Farmer's Wife Quilt,
this one might have tempted me into making a Dear Jane.

All the quilts on display were beautiful and a huge credit to their creators.
All inspiring.

There were also stalls full of goodies, so lucky I didn't have the C/Card handy!
but I still managed to pick up some fabrics :o)

Some Bliss ... no way was I walking away from this

and all this for only $30!
After making my Hopscotch Quilt my Bliss stash was looking very sad
but now it has come to life again

and this makes me VERY happy :o)

Also picked up some Reunion Fabrics in the Grey and Yellow (Mustard) colourway.

After selecting my colour scheme for my Bee Blocks and Block Swap Blocks
I realised that my stash in this colour way is non existent so I am working on fixing that.

After leaving the Quilt Show Lily and I walked over to Southbank via a little market in Federation Square and I found something special there but I will share that with you tomorrow :o)

Enjoy your day.

  4. Those quilts are fantastic! I'm tempted with the Dear Jane and got the book for Christmas, but I have to finish the Farmer first. Also, a lot of the blocks involve needleturn applique which I'm yet to master... it's a plan for the future :) Maybe I can convince you to do it with me!
