Canberra Quilt Show

I took a few photos of some of the quilts at the Canberra Quilters Exhibition last weekend. This one was amazing as nearly all these blocks have been hand pieced.

 Here I am with my Some Kind of Wonderful quilt.
 This one by Jenny Bowker won Best of Show and several other prizes. It was just amazing.
 This quilt was Linda's from class and it was made with very quirky fabrics. It was all about families and how they are all different and special in their own ways.

 I loved the colours in this more traditional quilt.
 This was a delightful modern quilt by Michelle Law.

 Here are a few other favourites. It was hard to choose my favourites as there were so many amazing quilts.

Fantastic quilts. Did Helen Godden have a new quilt in this year? There was one of her's at NEC last week in an exhibition 'Under the Southern Skies' along with a few other Australian quilters that I recognised. In fact the exhibition may have been at the Canberra show last year as am sure I had seen most of them before.
