Uh-oh. I just realised from looking at these photos that I haven't taken any of traditional quilts! The only one that could remotely qualify as traditional is Eternity, which is a string quilt. I confess I walked past most of the appliqué quilts (except for Tango in the Wind - in the previous post), as they were all in very muted colours, past the excruciatingly carefully foundation-pieced creations, and past the wholecloth quilts, which, while extraordinarily technically perfect, didn't 'do it' for me!

I just loved the landscape and abstract quilts. I think I might have to do a bit of experimenting one of these days!

I did enjoy just being surrounded by so many other quilters. It's a good feeling to know that there is such a great network out there. I look forward (around 30 years or so) to the day I retire and can do a lot more creating alongside lots of other like-minded women!

Thanks for sharing Lily. They are all so amazing. I particularly love the one of the Bungle Bungles - I have wonderful memories of a trip there.
