I finished work early on Friday and had a lovely lunch and afternoon perusing the Canberra Quilters Exhibition with my friend N. While in previous years I’ve just done a general post and some pictures about the exhibition, this year I decided I’d put a bit more thought into it so over the coming weeks you’ll see a small selection of posts discussing the finer points of particular quilts, the trends, techniques and observations.
Today I’m starting by posting a slideshow that walks you through the quilts I liked in the exhibition. This means there were at least twice this many but these were the ones that got my attention. It was interesting to see which quilts spoke to my friend and which reeled me in for a closer look, some of the same, some different and had N not been there I would have missed some of the detail in some of the ones that didn’t initially grab me.
So follow the link, have a look at the photos, and see what grabs you. The photos are in the order I took them so it’s worth trawling through the whole thing as there are many styles, sizes and ages represented and you never know what treasure you might find.
PS: And thanks to onethousandlayers.wordpress.com for the reminder to do something pretty with the photos that got me motivated to do a proper slideshow for this one. Free form piecing story coming soon to.
