Brisbane Quilt Show, October 2013

For those of you who aren’t even remotely interested in quilts, a few words of advice: you need to pick up the remote control, and change channels πŸ™‚

I am definitely interested in quilts, and I need to share photos (lots of photos!) of some of the wonderful work on show in Brisbane this year!

To make it easier, I’ll break it into sections.

First up, some places / scenery-type quilts.

Second, some people and animals.

Third, some quilts of a more traditional-style.

Next, a few plants and flowers:

Followed by a quick shot of the best in show (and apologies for a not-so-good photo, which doesn’t do it justice)

Sasa's piccies 015

… a couple of quilts that deserve a section all of their own …

Sasa's piccies 156Β Β  Sasa's piccies 152 cropped

Sasa's piccies 309Β Β  Sasa's piccies 310 cropped

…Β  and finally, some close-ups to really show off the details and intricacies of the work on some of the quilts.

Some pretty cool stuff, there, yes?

  1. Absolutely stunning, Sasa. Some incredible work there. Good thing you gave a close up of the bee on coreopsis (?) work – I had decided it was a painting! Thank you for showing all those masterpieces.

    • LOL, I know what you mean about that flower one, it was amazing! Have to say, though, that Jane and I thought the standard wasn’t quite up to last year’s, when there were a number of absolutely stunning entries: it was still pretty good, though, and we’ll definitely be back again next year! πŸ™‚ We had to laugh at one of the helpers there – we’d asked her some questions about some of the entries at one stage in the morning, and then she saw us again later on in the afternoon, and said, “Hallo again, are you two ladies STILL here?!” πŸ™‚ I think at that stage we still had about a quarter of the quilts to go round, and we hadn’t even been near any of the exhibition stalls, where they sell and demonstrate all sorts of crafty equipment and techniques! Next year we might just get a 2-day pass, and spend one day looking at the exhibits, and the other day participating in some of the workshops – oh, what fun we’ll have!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • I’ve been going to this show for about 3 years now, and each year I’m amazed at the creativity of the exhibitors, and the incredibly painstaking work they do: such tiny details in some of them, thousands of fiddly little pieces of fabrics and such wonderful end results – they ALL deserve a prize, in my book! πŸ™‚
