Quilt & Craft Fair Adelaide - more pics

As mentioned in my post last week, I went to the Quilt & Craft Fair in Adelaide.

I went for a leisurely stroll through the Quilt Exhibition - before I started quilting, I would just have a quick wander through and that would be it.  I could never understand the people who stood in front of a quilt for what seemed like a year ages and just look!

Well, now that I am quilting, I am one of those people ;-)

I wasn't so happy to see a sign saying that taking photographs was permitted, but only for personal use.  Images could not be published without the permission of the maker.  :-)

Anyway, I took some photos of some quilts that took my fancy, and I thought I would file them away as quilts I would like to tackle one day ;-)

I was most impressed with one particular quilt - Deconstructed Dresdens - I don't know whether it was the Dresden or the colour scheme, but both together in the one quilt were a big TICK for me.

I tracked down the maker (via the SA Quilters Guild website) and sent her an email letting her know I saw her quilt and loved it .............. and she gave me permission to blog about it ;-)

I was one of those people who stood in front of this quilt for *a year* ages and just let my eyes wander all over it ;-)

I took a photo of the details so I could look back on who made it

Thank you so much Sally - both for making this beautiful quilt which has inspired me so much and for giving me permission to blog about on my little blog ;-)

Next up, I came across this Farmer's Wife Quilt
it has been made by a fellow blogger that I follow Pip 
so ofcourse I asked her if I could blog about it too ...... and she very kindly said 'yes' ;-)
I confess, I never quite 'got' the appeal of this Farmers Wife thingy .............. until now ;-)

I don't think I am quite ready to tackle this paper pieced quilt just yet, but I have filed it away in my 'inspiration folder' for now ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.


  1. I loved the Deconstructed Dresden as well Cathy, there were a lot of lovely quilts this year, just a bit of a shame that we can't blog about them all.

  2. Two amazing quilts. Cathy it must have taken ages to walk through the quilt exhibition now that you quilt your self. I have not heard of a Farmers Wife Quilt but I love how there are so many differnt blocks.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, it is most appreciated!
