A Trip to the Quilt Show

Yesterday I went to the Melbourne Quilt Show and I had a wonderful time and met and saw a lot of friends, visited the many stands with wool and knitted garments. The mohair and alpaca were beautiful to touch. There were many stands with Japanese fabrics especially Taupes this year and I bought quite a few pieces. Last year when I wanted them for the Yoko Saito pattern I couldn't get them. I also got a few new patterns and some very nice fabrics. As usual I spent more than I intended, but then one only gets there once a year. It was lovely seeing friends with winning quilts. Here is Linda receiving her prize and ribbon for her beautiful quilt.
and here is her quilt.
These are a few of the ones I photographed.

This was amazing. One fabric and one piece in each block. 


I'll put some more up tomorrow.

Dorothy, I love "Birdsong in the Black Forest". Can you give any details about it's construction? It's sounds like you had a wonderful day at the quilt show. Congrats to your friend on her winning quilt.
