Textile Arts Festival

I had a wonderful day at the Textile Arts Festival. The first thing I did was visit the State of the Art quilt 11 exhibition, where my Cycle of Life quilt looked very good on the black wall :-)). The other quilts in the exhibition were stunning! You can see all of them here.

Here is my artist's statement - I forgot to copy it to my computer and couldn't remember wat I wrote!

Down Under Quilts had a postcard competition and the postcards were on display - there are three of mine in the top right section:

And here is my loot - mainly books and magazines, one Paintstick and a gorgeous piece of fabric from Dyed and Gone to Heaven. I signed up for their Monthly Metres Club again - after all, I have used up some of their fabrics recently, so need some new ones!

My ticket to the Festival was also valid for the Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo, so I had a look there - not really my cup of tea, I'm afraid... By a lucky coincidence, the Lifeline Book Fest was on at the Exhibition Centre as well and I happily spent a few hours there. Found lots of books in the unpriced section to use for making cards (fairytale books, atlases etcetera).

All in all a very good day! :-)

Linda - your quilt was a "stand out" at the exhibition. Just wonderful! Thanks for sharing it - and wearing your scarf too!

What a thrill seeing your quilt on the wall! Was this your first big exhibition or are you an old pro?
