the Craft and Quilt Fair came to Adelaide, this year I decided that I would go for two days as last year I was quite tired after spending the day there, and I thought if I spaced it out I would be able to enjoy it more. I spent a long time on both days looking at the Festival of Quilts display that the Quilters Guild of South Australia held, it is their major exhibition of the year. I was quite restrained this year, although there didn’t seem to be the same amount of exhibitors and the workshops and classes weren’t as varied as last time.
Unfortunately while photos were allowed to be taken they were not allowed to be published, but you can see the winners here (just click on each category to see photos of the quilts, then click on the photo for an larger version). There was a lovely Dear Jane quilt (see here) which I spent a long time looking at and taking pictures of for future reference, it took the maker 11 years to complete.
I6 - Viewers Choice
I machine pieced 4 squares of fabric and then cut out the shape to applique on to the background fabric, then appliqued the melons in place, I enjoyed making this one.
H9 – Snowflake Melt
This one was paper foundation pieced then those pesky diamonds were appliqued in place, I enjoyed making this one until it came to the diamonds.
