The exciting news was that Best of Show was won by an Australian named Katherine Jones. Here is a photo of her winning quilt named Bling.
The quilt is foundation pieced and as we were looking at the quilt, Katherine herself came along and so I asked her if I could take a photo of her with her quilt. Katherine comes from Tasmania.
Here are some of the others that were on display

Everybody recognised this man, so it must be a successful quilt.

There were some quilts on display that people have done in classes at past AQC's.
The next two quilts were done as a result of a class with Susan Carlson.

AQC is over for another year and once again it was a wonderful show, a visual feast with all those quilts, a shopping mecca and of course catching up with all the friends I have made through patchwork and quilting.
I did do some shopping; here is a photo of some of things I bought. I bought mainly fabric, stamps and books.
I also had a very quick catch up with Michele Hill who was working on the Bernina stand. Michele is giving up teaching so it is one of her last appearances but she is much loved and a very popular teacher.
Bye for now,
