A couple of years ago I blogged about how disappointed I was with the Canberra Quilt Show. Now if I recall the day, I wasn’t alone at the show having been accompanied by someone who didn’t like quilting and that may have contributed to my displeasure with the day. I love spending time with quilters and I have no objections at all with spending the day looking at quilts and discussing which you would choose for best of show and the like, but today I was alone as I wandered around looking at the quilts, and I must say I was impressed.
One of the things which I particularly enjoyed was seeing quilts by quilters whom I recognised. Gwen had two in the show (that I could see) and Melinda had another. I remember holding the Stitch and Bitch at my house, and being a part of the group looking at which colour Gwen should be using for the small border, and seeing the progress on another.
In other news, I joined Canberra Quilters today, so perhaps that will help with the actually quilting, rather than just thinking about it.
A couple of quilts which appealed to me…
