Quilt Show

Yesterday I went to the annual craft and quilt show held here in Brisbane. I met up with my bestie Ann and we had a lovely day together. I have to say though I was very disappointed with the lack of quilting and patchwork stalls.....the kind I like anyway. My purchases were very minimal....some EPP papers, buttons and ric rac. So I actually came home with funds....never happens usually!!!
The quilts at the show on the other hand were just beautiful. So thank gooodness for a lovely friend and gorgeous quilts! I have a few piccies to share of ones that took my fancy.
This was so beautiful and I had to take a close up of the busy little bee...
Fancy some 1/2 inch hexies...
What a stunner...
My favourites....red/green.
There seemed to be a lot of quiltmakers embracing EPP and hand applique....I loved seeing it.

A lady and I remarked to each other that we had no clue how one would even begin this beauty!
For you "blue" girls...

This next hand appliqued quilt beggared belief....so gorgeous!

Loved this one too.

Hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I did. You just can't help but feel inspired when you see the work of other quilters. I have 2 other photos but blogger is objecting so I will share next time.
After lugging the shopping home and up the stairs I am shouting myself a cuppa and perhaps a bit of a play with my new EPP papers.
I wish you a nice relaxing weekend.
Namaste and Blessings, Michelle xxx

  13. As a yellow flower fancier, I adore that first quilt Michelle.It is brilliant, and well-deserved of its prize. Bet you and Ann had a great day together, but disappointing that the quilt stores were not up to expectations! xx
