AQC begins on 19 April in Melbourne at the beautiful historic Exhibition Building.  I will be there, though sadly not for the whole convention (commitments in Perth) and I won’t be doing classes.  There will still be plenty for me to see and do. There will be hundreds of quilts – including one of mine – on display, workshops and demonstrations, and shopping.

There are lectures and social events for extra fun.  Here’s a picture of some of the members of WAQA at last year’s Dinner. Travelling from Western Australia, our group crosses two time zones to get here.

An advertisement for AQC arrived by email recently, and I was thrilled to see featured in the 2017 Challenge (a juried exhibition) a quilt by Megan Byrne, quilting friend and very active member of WAQA.  The theme this year is Made in Australia: Flora & Fauna. Meg’s quilt is a portrait of her domesticated galah Robyn and showcases her beautiful workmanship.  Look here, her quilt is in the top left corner.
