Sydney Quilt and Craft Show

I have just returned from Sydney, having had to drive my 90 year old father in law up there for an appointment which just happened, purely by chance, to coincide with the Quilt and Craft Show!   So I managed to have a couple of hours at the show at Darling Harbour while he was at his appointment in the city.   I loved all the variations of this "Dear Jane" quilt - lots of different colours and all beautifully stitched!

A closer view - and the quilting was superb!

As I'm right into a hexagon quilt at the moment - this one took my eye!   Again - the quilting is exquisite!

Some of the wearable art designs were amazing!

And this was just gorgeous close up - just like a painting!

Gorgeous quilting again!!

And one of my favourites - beautifully needle-turned flowers - gorgeous colours - fantastic quilting!  Ticks all boxes for me!

Love anything that combines patchwork with embroidery and this version of a Leanne Beasley quilt was lovely!

And one of the great things was to catch up with a fellow blogger or two!   Chookyblue was there and we arranged to meet - only I didn't have a clue what she looked like because she never puts a photo of herself on her blog!   So here is one for all of you who every wanted to know what Chookyblue (should be "Chookyred") looks like!     It was lovely to finally meet and we managed to fit a lot of talking into the few minutes we shared together!   Also got to meet up with Cardygirl (and her bag)too!  Lots of fun!!


  1. It was so great to meet you too! Great show!

  2. Such lovely workmanship! I don't quilt myself but I enjoy going to the shows. Some of the talent displayed is amazing!
    Nice that you were able to meet up with some blogging friends too!
