Good morning dear friends. I have been trying to get some photos of the AQC up since last weekend but alas have had no time. By now you will have probably seen many of these quilts at other sites, oh well, hopefully something new will appear here.
If you are not from Melbourne, the show is held at the old Exhibition buildings - truly beautiful building surrounded by lovely gardens. I didn't think to take a photo, but luckily Sue -Anne did - go have a look here.
I will post the photos in installments - otherwise the post will be huge. So today a few of my favourites.
My absolute favourite was a version of the Wickersham quilt. When I first saw the pattern, I didn't really like it but this version is fab! I think the sashing makes all the difference, don't you agree?
I absolutely love the clear colours in this quilt - and of course the geometry appeals to my maths brain.
Here are a couple of close ups.
The white dots are wool felt blanket stitched on - genius!
These two close ups are of quilts that were featured in Quiltmania a few months ago. I really like them - one reminds me of Christmas decorations.
I didn't think to take bigger photos sonce I already had them in the mag - sorry - thoughtless of me.
This one is a very nice reproduction of a quilt in Anette Gero's book The Fabric of Society.
A close second favourite was this one
Not your traditional quilt - quite medeaval - the background is like a brick arch. I took a close up of the machine quilting because it was like a mosaic.
So much talent out there!
Not the best photos - but the lighting was bad at the show with lots of natural light coming through the windows behind the quilts - made it hard to photograph.
I will have some more photos to show soon.
In the meantime I'm working on the second applique border for Phebe (and nothing else). A photo of the first one over at SSS.
I hope you enjoy some of the work that our talented Aussies are producing. Have a lovely weekend.
