This is what we saw when we arrived at the Royal Exhibition Building.

And then this man helped to set the scene for the day!!

This is what we saw when we ventured inside.

And these are some of the magnificent quilts we saw.

Some stunning Kim McLeans.

Some Annette Gero Military Quilts.

The fabulous Irene Carrig Dancing Dollies.

These happy faces with purchases in hand at the end of the day.

We headed to Sorrento, where l turned those,

There was a little bit of this,
