Show Review

Wow! I had a blast at the Melbourne Craft and Quilt Fair, a truly memorable day. Not only was I able to enhance my fabric stash, but I also met some very friendly bloggers.



The quilts on show were all amazing, and the variety outstanding. From embellished quilts,

Fabric Frenzy by Fran Batrouncy

to traditional quilts;

Hexagon Quilt by Flora Eggers - c 1950

And there was also an award winning quilt in the Custom Quilting section:

But more about that tomorrow, together with the new stash!

  3. That Fractal Fantasy is unbelievable! I wonder if the quilter still has any of her sanity left. The piecing is so precise!

    I really enjoy checking in on all of the wonderful "down under" blogs from here in the states. Maybe it's my imagination, but I seem to see a lot more with vibrant colors and a really spirited sense of composition.
