I have returned home from the Australian Machine Quilting Festival exhausted. The four days were fabulous - I would like to thank Tracey Browning and Sharon Parkinson for organising this fantastic event. Thanks also to the many volunteers, vendors, teachers, sponsors and judges.
The American instructors were truly inspirational especially Pam Clarke, Kimmy Brunner and Anne Bright - they are all so passionate about quilting and were great instructors. I have learned a lot and am looking forward to putting some of these quilting ideas into practice.
The Australian Machine Quilting Show was held in conjunction with AMQF and was a wonderful display of quilts. I was thrilled to learn that two of my quilts had been awarded ribbons.
My wholecloth quilt "Envy" was awarded a Second Prize ribbon in the Custom Heirloom / Show - Wall Category.
My quilt "Field of Flowers" was awarded a First Prize ribbon in the Edge-to-Edge Category.
It is back to the quilting machine now - lots of quilts to be done before Christmas!
