It seems the world has gone crazy with rules. Rules for this and rules for that.
So as much as l would like to post lots of photos from the
Melbourne Quilt and Craft Show that l visited today,
RULES say l can only post the ones where
l have been given permission from the maker.
So attention to the rule makers.
Permission has been granted for all the following quilts!!
This first quilt, by Helen Hayes, is just beautiful.

Wendy Blyth is a member of the Castlemaine Applique Group.
This stunner won runner up in the Traditional category.
l took this same class as Wendy.
(Mine is still in a box, waiting to be finished!!)
As you can see, our Castlemaine Applique Group has some
wonderfully amazing and inspirational quilters,
which l guess is why l enjoy going to this group so much.
This beautiful green quilt was until recently an antique quilt top.
Then Karen Terrens quilted it, and it became the prize winner it
was always meant to be. You might recognise Karen's name.
She is the lady responsible for working her magic on
So you can imagine my joy and delight, when looking at
Karen's quilt below, to discover that it had "WON" Best Of Show!!!
Congratulations Karen on a well deserved win.
Just look at all those ribbons!! Oh My!!
You can read Karen's story here!
And the sneak peak we had of her quilt back here!
l couldn't be more happier for her.
Except to say, She quilts my quilts!!!!
l will be back with a collection of special quilts that were on exhibit.
Thanks for visiting.
