AQC in Melbourne

I have just had a lovely weekend away in Melbourne. Good friends, yummy food and a quilt show! The only disappointment was the airbnb which was very grubby! We managed to live in for the 3 nights and still had a good time but it spoilt things a little. We flew down on Thursday and enjoyed an afternoon of shopping etc.

 On Friday we headed to the AQC at the lovely Exhibition buildings.

 So special to catch up with Pete and Anni from Hatched and Patched and Kelli from Cutting Cloth.

 Lovely to see Rose working on Helen Stubbings' stall too.
Audrey and I enjoying the shopping!
 There were wonderful stalls and it was great to see all the quilts too. You know that I have been making this quilt! This may motivate me to get moving on it.
 There were some absolutely amazing quilts. Here are just a few.

On Saturday, a few of us headed on the train to Cutting Cloth, which is a gorgeous shop. It even has chandeliers.

Even the bathroom is gorgeous.

We then headed back into the city of a little more shopping and also a visit to the Art Gallery. We enjoyed two delicious meals in the lanes and one wonderful Japanese meal. We then flew home on Sunday.
