A little tardy I know but here is some eye candy – some of the inspirational quilts from AQC in Melbourne:-
Firstly – from the ‘Paws and Whiskers’ competition…
And while we’re in the animal world – have a look at visiting tutor Susan Carlson’s work – Dingo Dreaming….
and the AMAZING Stevie – Crocodylus Smylus – 20 foot long…
There was a display of red and white quilts from Sydney –
I don’t think I’ve ever seen needleturn that small – this quilt was quite incredible.
And there was another competition fro ‘Tradition with a Twist’ – here’s some of what we saw in that category –
There were war quilts from Annette Gero – quilts that had been made by soldiers – often from uniform fabric and whatever else was available –
and there were the best of each state and the best of the best – quilts selected by each state guild to represent that state-
There were fabulous art quilts and quilts by the tutors at the festival –
And there was my quilt
And there was fun times with friends –
I think you should come with us next year – don’t you?
Until later happy quilting
