I went to AQC on Friday and thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
:: Bumped into Andi and saw her amazing quilt of Audrey Hepburn
:: Went to a lecture (with Andi) on Liberty of London including their latest fabrics and fabric adventures
:: At the lecture I sat with our new friends from Sydney – so nice to see those girls again (think they’ve had a great time!)
:: Briefly met Victorian Findlay Wolfe – such a gracious and lovely lady – and saw her quilts “in person” – stunning use of colour and quilting.
:: Saw Rachaeldaisy’s beautiful “Blooming Doilies” quilt “in person”. Photos don’t do this quilt justice – it is gorgeous! Such a clever way to showcase doilies and stunning set on the red background.
:: Met lots and lots of friends and chatted heaps!!
There were several stands that I knew I wanted to visit, and I was successful in each case.
Love the Maze and Vale fabrics and I’ve been following Leslie on Instagram (@mazeandvale) for some time. Picked up these pieces
Now that my sewing room has been reorganised, there’s room to set up my small ironing board, so a small, decent iron was on the shopping list.
l’uccello have a new pattern out for some sewing accoutrements, and there were also some bags of feed sack scraps, perfect for my circles.
Karen has some new patterns out, and I’ve been waiting for her “Circle of Sisters” one to be released.
This is a quilt I’ve wanted to make for such a long time, and if someone else has done the hard work, and provided the templates, I’m taking advantage! As soon as it saw it, I knew my collection of Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s “Mostly Manor” would be perfect
Did you go? What did you buy?
PS Sorry there are no pictures from AQC – like many shows these days, pics are forbidden so I didn’t even take my camera with me.
