Australasian Quilt Convention - Melbourne

So much to share with you all! But I thought I would share some pics from the Australiasian Quilt Convention that I went to in Melbourne! Above is me with notorious Ned Kelly - an Australian bushranger. (Notice the Ned Kelly thimbles on his fingers!) Robin, Me, Linda, Anne - I got to meet Linda Collins from Quilts in the Barn! And Corliss Searcey from Threadbear Patchwork and Quilting in front of her "The English Basket Quilt" - isn't it GORGEOUS! I went with my friends Jody (middle) and Cathy (left) - we had a blast! We took Melbourne by storm! And ate lots of yummy food! I could have stayed and ate my way through Melbourne!

Cathy, Tess (her daughter), Jody and myself eating on Lygon Street.

Oh my gosh there is so much happy going on!!! And would you look at those quilts. You're going to start working on that Basket quilt next, right? Umm, can I mention that plate of food? I have to because it looks so darn good and I'm certain I'm starved half to death now!!!!
