No sleeping in this Sunday past. Tracey, Margaret and I left Elphinstone at 9 to get Margaret to her Quilt Angel duty for Vic Quilters on time.

As usual it was amazingly busy, so many stands with so many tempting fabrics. A couple of my favourites would be, BE BE BOLD, Needles and Pins and of course Threadbear.  This time I was very restrained and barely spent any money, only 1 piece of fabric, from Needles and Pins of Warrandyte, this beautiful, bright cheddar coloured fabric and a new 60 mm sized rotary cutter, which has become a necessity.

It was also exciting to see quilts belonging to a couple of lovely ladies I know in the Vic Quilters exhibition.

I also really loved the bright, modern style quilts at the exhibition.  Here are some snippets of two that caught my eye.

King David Crown by Karen Terrens

I think this one won a prize for quilting. Well it was just gorgeous.

UPDATE:  The above quilt was made and quilted by Karen of Quilts on Bastings.  Another of Karens quilts, Crop Circles, which I also saw at Vic Quilters is a truly beautiful example of modern quilting.

I love England by Maddy Clark

This amazing quilt, was by a secondary school student, I think, Maddy Clark.

I also loved the Winding Ways quilts exhibition. I’d love to do one myself someday.  Anyway time to go and sort out my Chrome & Cheddar Yellows. 🙂

ciao
