We had a spur of the moment decision to go to AQC, just for the day. We arrived in Melbourne at 9.30am and got home just after 10pm! A whirlwind trip. Roseanne and myself had a great time, I had never been to AQC, and Roseanne had never been to Melb!!
The quilts were AMAZING! I especially liked this one, called 'Elenor Jean' enough to purchase the book, signed by Linda White herself! And, it was best in Australia. Made from 1/4" hexies.
You cant see that this one had been jewelled:
The one below was made entirely from scraps, some 1/2" pieces! WOW!!
I really loved this giant Swoon!
We decided to do some Make & Take Workshops. I was keen to try Helen Stubbings hexie method with the iron on applique, so started this cute as a button purse. These hexies are 1/4" and I made one flower in the class - I could have done more, but got chatting! I look forward to finishing this at some stage....
Here is Helen and Myself at the class:
Another class we chose to do was this cute necklace. These were quick and easy. Though I had trouble turning it in the right way, even the teacher had trouble fixing it for me LOL. Give me a skewer or chopstick I can handle that!
It was also lovely to catch up with Gail Pan. I adore her patterns, and while I was there, I picked up some newbies.
We left as the door closed and tried many times to take a 'selfie'. This is as good as it gets. We sure got some giggles.
Beautiful water feature at Carlton Gardens
We hope to come back next year.
