Preparing for AQC 2018

The Australasian Quilt Convention or AQC for short begins on Thursday and it looks as if it is going to be just as wonderful as always. If you click on the link you can get a sneak peak of the wonderful quilts that will be displayed.

I was lucky enough to have a quilt in the final of the Bridges and Borders exhibition. I called it Mangrove Nursery and it is about how the mangrove roots form a bridge shape and create a border that stops the large fish from entering allowing the small fish a chance to grow.

It was the first time I have entered the AQC challenge and was thrilled to be accepted because I know they get a large number of entries.

Another quilt of mine called The Bleaching will also be on display.

I love AQC because quilters from all over Australia gather and we see get to see some of the best quilts from around the world. This year there are art quilts from SAQA, the modern quilts from
 Quilt Con and the Van Gogh quilts from the Cherrywood challenge as well as many others.

Of course there are all the shops with all that merchandise to tempt us as well.

I will be there every day and hope to catch up with many friends over the four days.

AQC is held at the beautiful Royal Exhibition building in Carlton Gardens Thursday to Sunday 10am to 4.30pm.

Bye for now,
