AQC 2016

Hotel view of the exhibition building
I've been so busy since getting back from Melbourne that I haven't had chance to post about the fantastic week spent with good friends at the Australasian Quilt Convention. We had a wonderful trip full of fun, shopping, classes, meals out, lectures, trips to Fed Square and the NGV, Gala Dinner (I could go on...). I did a four day class with the US tutor, Susan Carlson who was amazing. I also had a quilt (Dear Angela) on display representing the best from WA, which is always an exciting experience. 
I'll let the photos speak for themselves...

A quilter's heaven!

  1. Are you sure you are not at a concert, in that second last photo?!! You were sure having fun! I remember admiring your Dear Jane quilt, as did my friend Deb who probably loves Liberty more than I do!

  3. It was with immense surprise and delight that I turned around at ACQ and there was Dear Angela! What a marvellous quilt. It quite made my day, on a day when I had to be remindeed to close my mouth as I stared at the talent and artistry on show.
    Looking forward to seeing the quilt you were working on there😊

  4. Great to hear you were at AQC and saw dear angela. She needed a day out as usually she sits on my dining room wall and tends to be taken for granted!
