Here are the three of us. From left is myself, Myra and Helen, Myra's sister-in-law, who is also a quilter. That was our second break for the day. We needed coffee fixes every couple of hours after walking and shopping.
A quick snap into the exhibition area. I tried not to take photos of people, but it was hard to avoid that on a day like this. I could not tell how many quilts were on exhibit. What I enjoyed most were the Australian antique quilts. They ranged from a tiny hexagon quilt that was totally hand pieced to tiny strips of log-cabin quilt. I did not get a good photo of them so I can only show you the better photos of the quilts below:
These bears are my favorite. They must have been twin bears because they were made exactly the same way from antique quilts. They were part of the Log-cabin community exhibition. I love this scrap quilt that the bears were sitting on. It is a true scrap quilt in every way.
The crazy quilt above was a raffle quilt made by members of the Victorian Quilters Inc. The quilt was true style crazy quilt and included all type of embroidery stitches, applique motives and embelishment. The rich variety of fabrics used was fantastic. I have a collection of fabrics to make a crazy quilt one of these days. Myra and I were talking that we would like to make one as a project to remind us of our trip.
The last quilt is this applique picture perfect quilt showing Australian birds. The quilt caught my eye because it displays some of Australia's native birds that we often see right in our backyard. It was beautifully quilted too.
