What a great workout ....

... my credit card got yesterday at the Australasian Quilt Convention.

So much crafty goodness!!!

I purchased some divine Amy Butler fabrics as well as a few bits and bobs for the stash.

Also some hand dyed fabrics and a couple of jelly rolls (my first jelly rolls ever!!)

And a great book about the history of American quilts, some Appli-Kay Wonder and some printable fabric sheets.

My mum came along with me a purchased a kit with yummy japanese fabrics, a book and a template so I can make her a throw for her sun room.

As well as ample opportunities to spend next month's mortgage payment, there was an amazing exhibition of quilts.

Here are some of the ones I found particularly inspiring:

Enjoy your crafting wherever you are.

That last quilt with the flowers is wonderful!

I've appliqued some felted flowers before:

My credit card got a workout at Sew Expo too. Seems like fabric shoppers are still fueling the economy here!

those quilts look amazing - lucky you getting to buy all that stuff. I am saving my money for the Stitches & Craft Show.

HA! Andi, your post title had me laughing out loud this morning! THanks for the laugh. What lovely loot you gathered! That last quilt is wonderful (not that the others aren't fantastic as well, but that last one speaks to me).
