AMQF – quilt showcase. – You need to go.

I had the opportunity to attend the AMQF (Australian Machine Quilt Festival) cocktail party last evening and after the event we were able to spend some time looking at some of the wonderful quilts on show.

I’m going to share a few but the images are only for your enjoyment, certainly not to use for any other purpose.

I really loved this quilt and it went on to win Best of Show.

It’s different, it’s a whole cloth and I love the fact that the image is drawn on the surface of the fabric and of course the little trees are just charming and remind me of someone I know quite well.

I’m afraid this isn’t the best photo, but it does give you an idea of the expert craftsmanship of  the quilter, Pam Hill. On the wing.

Claudia and I enjoyed a delightful meal at Madam Hanoi’s restaurant. I’ve certainly enjoyed entertaining her here in my home town.

  1. Amazing Pam! I love the Methylene Blue Mandalas too – great that you were able to take photos for your blog – and lucky you, to live where these are exhibited.
