Melbourne - Australian Machine Quilting Exhibition

This is my wholecloth quilt - done on Cotton Sateen - I entered this into the AMQE in Melbourne in July 2007 - You can see that when you send quilts away for showing - they don't really like it because they don't hang right with all the fold marks. Never mind though - most of us girls were in the same boat as far as that was concerned - fold marks that is.

The pattern is one by Hermione Agee of Lorien Quilting - she does come up with some lovely patterns.

Here I am with my lovely quilt - I am having some nice hints from different people how this quilt should go home with them!!

This one is the Winner - well sort of - it received a "Highly Commended" And I was over the moon about that. You really can't see the pattern in the quilting very well at all - but it is "Brittany" by Hari Wallner. A very nice one if I do say so.

And last, but not least - here I am with two of my sisters - Karen, Florence and then Me!
Karen came to Melbourne with me from Tasmania and Florence came all the way from Adelaide. They are such sweeties - so thank you my lovely sisters, for your support.
Florence suggested some footballer would like to buy this quilt - Sydney Swans perhaps. Well it is yours if you can come up with $2,000.00
