Vince and I went to Sydney for the AQM (Australian Quilt Market) on the weekend, this is a wonderful show where all the distribitors for patchworkand quilting related products set up a booth to show off their goodies. This is a wonderful opportunity for store owners to see everything thats new plus all the old favourites in one place at one time. So, if you missed out this time then mark your diary now-November when the next one is held in Melbourne.
This weekend the show was at a new location right in the heart of the city which was fun.
Here is a small section of my display, you can see the 'Bluebird Cottage' quilt which is made using fabric from my new Hollyhock Cottage Collection and you can see the corner of 'Wonky Webs' which is the free to download quilt pattern and its using fabrics from my Happy Halloween Collection.
Vince and I snuck out for lunch....well OK we went shopping and ended up in the Max Brenner chocolate shop where we gorged ourselves on Belgian waffles drenched in chocolate with some sliced strawberries and bananas!!
One of the other highlights of being in the heart of a big city is that we were lucky enough to be able to enjoy (from under an umbrella) the amazing Vivid Sydney light show where some of the buildings at Darling Harbour had incredibly clever light shows on them.
Amazing trees of light in the park.
There were lights that changed colour and patterns that were done to music on some of the main buildings, we could have watched for hours.
These flowers were under an old brick bridge, first the vine appeared and then the roses followed by the gerberas....so beautiful.....then it all faded and started again.
I loved these fishy covered rickshaws.
We had a busy but nice weekend, hope you did too
