Australian Quilt Market - Melbourne

I have just returned from a few days in Melbourne, a couple of very good friends (none patchworking friends) joined me. We did the tourist bit on Thursday with a cruise along the Yarra River, then a coach trip which included the City highlights then off to the Dandelongs, on our arrival back into the city we found a great little Italian resturant in Liagon Street for dinner, very enjoyable over a few wines. If anyone knows me personally they know I am not realy a shopper but Friday we spent from 10am until 5pm shopping at the DFO shops in Spencer st, I had an absolute ball and the best thing of all, I purchased 5 new pairs of shoes, I love shoes. My DD questioned me about how was I ever going to wear all of the shoes that I have -- how dare she....................
Saturday was spent at the Australia Quilt Market, it was great to catch up with lots of like mined souls as well as meet some others for the first time. There some great new patterns, designs, fabrics, books etc to see, far to much to take in, in a short few hours. I always find I need to come home and gather my thoughts before ordering too much. I will be writing my November Newsletter this week so I will share some of the things that appealed to me, so until my next post, stay safe and happy sewing.

Can't wait to hear more about what appealed to you. Those Halvorsen fabric bolts appeal greatly to me!
