This week the annual Carnival of Flowers has been on here in Toowoomba and this means Toowoomba Quilters have their quilt show as well. A lot of time and effort has been put into making this years show a huge success. If you click on the link above you will be able to see photos of some of the quilts each day.
I had a couple of favourites, but of course my photography is nowhere near the professional photos on the Toowoomba Quilts blog. So pop over and have a look and this interesting site.
I just loved this floral applique design.
Here is a collage of some of the quilts that took my eye.
The theme for the art quilts this year was a self portrait. Do you recognise anyone on this set. You may need to enlarge it but the clue is she is a favourite of many.
This year one of the fund raising events was for breast cancer so a challenge was thrown to the members to make art bras. The colour was purple so we have quite a few on display.
These are just a few the other photo was too blurry to post.
Two other projects for the members were making table runners, and small hangings with the them Tea for Two
The members who participated put in some excellent results. There are a lot of accomplished quilters in this group.
Last but not least.....I went shopping. We had a lot of traders stalls, and I could not resist this one. If you go to the website you will find WackyJacky.com.au where you will find the most wonderful colourful batik fabrics. Here is Jacky on her stall and below that are some of the fabrics that were irresistible. They have made my fabric pages zing.......yes that is right I could not wait to enhance my fabric pages with them. Di has a new blog eatplayquilt.blogspot.com
Unfortunately I have not been able to get round the gardens this year. The weather has been quite hot...33degC today.....so when not on duty at the quilt show demonstrating embroidery, I have just been slothing around at home, sewing and sleeping.
