Australian Quilt Convention – news!

Coming home after 3 days at Melbourne’s Australian Quilt Convention I just had to do a quick post because the amazing news is that two wonderful NSW Guild members were awarded by the highest “feather in one’s cap”.    

Kay Haerland (on the right)  won Best Of Australia award for her quilt, Monarchs in the Rainforest.  It is a superb piece of innovative work, combining both art and traditional quilting.  

Rosslyn Moules (on the left) won an award for community service.  Rosslyn leads a team of quilters to make thousands (or even more) quilts that are donated to charity.

Amazing women with such large hearts – and now awarded with the recognition they deserve.   The gala dinner at Melbourne was such a joyous night, my heart is still singing.  Check out the NSW Quilters Guild blog soon for more details. 

Meantime – here is a giggle!!  Well, one would be tempted to think these new Bernina  “quilters” glasses are to ensure mistakes disappear on our work!  Everyone – all 400+ (my estimate) of us attending the Gala Dinner, received a pair.   The Convention was such an inspirational event.
