Unfortunately, this is the only picture of a quilt that I can show because it was outside the exhibition.
I know this potentially 'opens a can of worms' but I personally don't understand why you shouldn't be able to post photos on a blog, of quilts that are on public display. The issue isn't the taking photos as you were able to take them for personal use. A request to accredit the makers and designers could be a requirement. I just think it's a shame that we can't share these wonderful quilts more widely - what do you think?
The exhibition was very inspirational and it was fascinating to read about and see all of the different versions of the 'Elizabeth's Legacy' quilt including Jan Mac's.
I then went home motivated to tidy up my very messy sewing room and do some prep. I got the inspiration for the ring of rose fabric from Miriam's Jane Pizar block. This is what I'm talking about - sharing ideas from each other!

Also did some appliqué for the CCCQ - I hope those wrinkles iron out.

On the way to the exhibition I picked up Judy and grabbed some pics of her AWS design wall and a better photo of her block # to update my last post.
