Sydney and the Quilt show

Paddy and I headed to Sydney on the bus on Wednesday for our visit to the Sydney Craft show. After we checked into our apartment and had some lunch we headed to the Queen Victoria Building for a wander around. We also made sure we visited Morris and Sons, which is a lovely shop with gorgeous wool!

 After just a few purchases there we headed back to the QVB and had afternoon tea.

Thursday was the highlight as we walked to Darling Harbour for the Craft show. We enjoyed the day of shopping and also enjoyed seeing the quilts. It was a good show and we did manage to find quite a few things to buy. The only downside was the long queues for coffee! Hopefully they might address that problem next time. We enjoyed visiting Anni Downs' stall and BeBe Bold especially.
I did take some pictures of the quilts. Hope you enjoy them.

 This mini was made with beautifully, fussy cut 1/4" hexagons!

 This is Helen Godden's amazing quilt with its blue first place ribbon.

 Lastly here is the shopping. I did buy a bit of wool this time both at the show and from Morris and Sons, and some more patterns and fabric too!!!! I just couldn't resist!.
