After a poke through the stalls all wanting to convince us we must have their fabric, kits, patterns, beads or can't do without the latest product, we took ages to browse the inspiring displays and exhibitions of quilts on show.
These ones from the challenge to depict The Seven Deadly Sins caught my eye. There were quite a few that showed Adam, Eve, serpents, and others with cakes, chocolates and sumptuous food to interpret themes of gluttony and lust. I liked the ones that were less literal in their interpretation.
Beautiful art quilts in the 'Essence of Australia' challenge.
A section of indigo art quilts.....my favourite of all those there I thinkKaye Haerland who also won Best of Australia for NSW...so much detail in her quilts. See the tiny mouse peeking out of the flower!
This small art quilt was made by my friend Lajla, entered in the "Found Objects" challenge. She used feathers she'd found while walking at the beach.
and I really liked this one too, also made for the 'Found Objects' challenge, she has used her found objects as dye resists...very clever and I love the colours.
I'll leave you with this cheeky fellow who turned up amongst the quilts with a warning.......
