The Buderim Craft Group is a collection of a variety of groups and in November they have a Fair where all the crafters display and sell work, but in July it's the quilters who put on a show (and sell some things)
Here are a few things I especially admired...
(sorry another photo overload)
This is a lovely version of Leanne Beasley's Leanne's House quilt which I'd really love to make one day now that my Journey of a Quilter is nearly finished.
and some close ups - Debby - who made this - is a crazy patchworker at heart - I got to talk to her and she said she would wake up in the middle of the night and think "Oh I could do that in that spot" - so this quilt has lots of buttons and beads.
(One of the reasons I like to go to this Quilt Show is the fact that my Aunt is a long standing member of the group - including a long time as Treasurer - so she knows most of the quilters and introduces me to them.)
and here is some detail of some stockings made by Debby
I thought this quilt was a good pattern for using bits and for a more manly pattern.
and a close up
I thought this was really quirky with the cats around the edges
this was stunning - this design was based on a tiled floor in Venice
and a few pictures I took - more for ideas - they go on the "haha if ever" list
and the final one - appliqued flowers in pale bali fabrics - of particular note is the interesting stripy fabric - a bali - used around the outside.
All in all - a fun day with my bestie and my Aunt.
Next quilt show...not far away (in time) - but closer to home.
