Sydney Quilt Show 2017

Hi All

As promised, finally, a post of our trip to The Sydney Quilt Show held at Darling Harbour in Sydney, Australia back in June.

JulieAnn & I flew to Sydney on the Friday and didn't come home until Monday afternoon. It was the most fabulous weekend of friendship, relaxation (except for all the walking), chilling out and awe-inspiring, breathtaking quilts.

Good thing for us we bought 3 day passes, because on Day 1 we didn't even see half of the quilts and only managed about 3 aisles of stands. It was HUGE!! The beauty in being by ourselves with no time constraints.

We were excited to meet some of Quilting Royalty in Petra Prins, Di Ford-Hall, Brigitte Giblin, Michelle Yeo, Kathy Doherty plus say hello to a few extremely talented Australian store owners / designers.

We shopped, we learnt and made magic memories. Please enjoy; I'm sorry that I haven't linked or noted designers / makers 

We've Arrived!!

The New Exhibition Centre

 Rhonda Pearce had an Exhibition of her Amazing Works




And then onto the Rest (well just a few)

6561 x 1 inch squares and as you can see from below ~ perfectly aligned!!


Mini Quilts 


Of course there was shopping, this isn't all of it or JulieAnn's!!

And Ladies Lunch & A Drink or Two

We took a Water Taxi Mini Tour of the Harbour which topped off a perfect day

On Monday morning before leaving we walked to the Queen Victoria Building - WOW!! What a beautiful piece of history, just stunning and needing a return trip with more time & empty luggage! 

How beautiful are these original tiles in the Ladies Amenities
Time for a Sit & Treat in this Glorious Building

From Me to You ~ Cheers

Hope you enjoyed our trip to Sydney
Til Next Time
Happy Stitching
