Quilt show photos

Well hi everyone - I hope you're all well and getting some quality stitching time. After thinking about starting an MM block - I had a change of heart and decided to get going on Phebe's applique borders. Nearly finished number one so I will show you next post. In the meantime I have some photos from Essendon quilter's show for you. For our non Aussie friends - we don't have too many antique quilts, so our shows are mostly new quilts.

This is Kerry's quilt - and here is a close up

I took a photo of her tag

so you could see that this is the first SSS quilt we made.

I think this quilt (below) won a prize at the show

Some of you will recognise it as Homage to Sallie Anne - a Primarily Patchwork design.

A lovely simple quilt in Pennsylvania Dutch colours

Some nice thirties style quilts on show. I like the fresh colours of these.

This is a small oak leaf and reel

A couple of quilts designed by Robyn Falloon

I liked these repro quilts

And these ones just looked good to me

The AQC is coming up this weekend. This is one of the big Melbourne annual quilt shows - I'll try to get some photos of that one too.

Back to Phebe................take care.

What an amazing pool of talent there. Is there something in the water? I love the pieced quilts and I adore the Homage to Sally Anne, I have the pattern and I'd love to tackle it sometime. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

Wow!! So many wonderful quilts!
I have never been to the Essendon quilt show. I will be making sure I get there next time. Thank you for sharing!!
Homage to Sallie Anne is one of my favourite quilts. I saw it at Primarily Patchwork when I first went there to learn quilting. I have the pattern now and I will be making it one day.....a few UFOs to complete first. :)
