Kim McLean was the featured artist and her quilts were magnificent. This one is called Lollypop tree. The colours are so vibrant!

All Of Kim McLean's quilts were magnificent and I was so grateful to see them "in the flesh".
This quilt is called Trinity Hall by Susanne Cody, another famous Australian quilter. I loved this quilt for many reasons, one of which is how she has displayed the beautiful toile fabric in the centre.
I loved how Susanne Cody used little hexagons for her initials in the quilt.
I am just starting to get into fussy cutting and I found it interesting how quilters can see something in a piece of fabric that will create a stunning piece of applique like the flower above.
Ancient Watercourse by Gloria Loughman. This quilt was the Rajah Winner in 2009
These are my purchases that I came home with, the most special being the V & A Museum book.
And this yummy parcel arrived for me on Tuesday. I won a prize from Mayleen. She had a guessing competition on her blog regarding an old hexagon quilt and I won! Thank you Mayleen, it was great fun.
Well this has been another mammoth post for me. Some people (Howard & Nic!) in this house have been watching far too many U Tube videos and as a result have used up all our download credit and we have been slowed down. It has taken nearly two hours to upload these photos but not to worry, I have been stitching some of Swan Lake while waiting.
