Australiasian Quilt Convention: Royal Exhibition Buildings Melbourne - such a great spot! Bummer I didn't take photos of the frescos on the walls and ceilings - I was too busy mesmerised by the quilts!My Mum always comes with me to the Show each year - she's not a quilter, but I think she can appreciate the art and effort of these masterpieces. We like to talk about ones we both like and dislike and sometimes agree to disagree! My birthday is usually after the show - which is a great way of getting a quilty present early! (Except Mum puts it away til my actual day - drats!)
Here are just a sample of my favourites:
This shot came out too dark, but we stood about 5m back from it and was amazed at the way the white tree trunks stood out and then our eyes were taken to the background - great effects!
This one has sequined quilting!
This masterpiece won the 'Fantasy' Challenge - OMG It is a Book!
