Quilts from the Hamilton Craft & Quilt Fair

I meet up with my friend Donna at the Hamilton show and we had a great day together catching up, looking at quilts, and of course shopping at the Merchant Mall. Shows are always better when shared with someone else. 
So now I'll share some of my favourite quilts from the show with you too.

This quilt made me gasp when I turned the corner and saw it. Just amazing, I loved it!

The faces of the girls are incredible. This was the runner up, but I think I would have chosen it as the winner.

This was the winner, it was impressive but didn't hang flat.

I really liked the textures of the background, and the quilting too.

The bees just made this quilt for me! Loved them.

The colours of this really glowed.

I really liked the applique on this one, and how it was 'woven' around the pieced blocks.

  4. I enjoyed that special 'FREE' exhibition too - and loved the horse quilt. Interesting how many people made quilts depicting dandelions!
