Australian Quilt Market

I can't tell you how absolutely exhausted I was after two whole days at the Melbourne AQM!

last Friday afternoon there I was setting up my part of the Creative Abundance stand, I can't tell you what amazingly talented company I was in! truly inspirational

I was so happy to meet so many lovely people who love my designs, always a relief!
and a real treat to meet a few people who's work I have admired for many years.

I was even given a few treats to have a play with, Anni Downs from Hatched and Patched gave me three bundles of her gorgeous felted wool to try, I am in love with the colours and the wool is so soft. I can't wait to start sketching and playing with ideas.

It was also a pleasure to meet Pam from Cottage Garden Threads who gave me two gorgeous skeins of her variegated threads to try.

All together a great show, already starting to plan for next year!

I still have one more design to write up before the end of the year so better get back to it.

Until next time




  1. Congratulations on a beautiful display at AQM. It was lovely to meet you and wonderful to see your designs "in the flesh". Your range of patterns are just gorgeous! Kind regards, Melissa.

  2. Hi Melissa,
    It was an absolute pleasure to meet you, I have adored your button in the past and look forward to seeing your new creations. All the best with 'One Day In May'


  3. Hi Simone,

    I know how exhausting just attending a quilt festival is, let alone being a vendor.

    The wool is gorgeous. I bought a few pieces of hand dyed wool at a quilt show I attended a year ago and still have most of it. Like everybody else, I just have too many projects going on!
