The show opened on Friday, Anzac Day at 11 am and I was surprised at the turnout by people visiting the show, it was packed, a testament of just how popular the Springwood quilt show can be. I had a great day catching up with friends and meeting new ones, purchased some bargains and fabric for fussy cutting. My experience from doing "Patchwork of the Crosses" is looking at fabric in various ways for fussy cutting and I am finding it difficult to stop buying fabric to use this way, there is always some hexagon or shape waiting to be covered.
Below is some eye candy, starting with two of my quilts.
"Texas Wheel" designed by Chris Jurd, inspired by a 1840 quilt made by Grace Slater, England.
Lucy's Crosses, "Patchwork of the Crosses "Lucy Boston, England. This quilt took me 19 months to complete the 56 blocks and 6 solid weeks of sewing the 1inch squares, to bring the quilt together.
Now for some of the quilts on display, some amazing works of art, featured below.
