I was so lucky last weekend to have a few days away from the family indulging in some me time!
I travelled across to Adelaide for the Australia Machine Quilting Festival. This is a festival of all things machine quilting (obviously!) and there was a lot of focus on longarm machines along with some amazing local and international teachers. I took 9 classes in total and learnt so much from the talented educators that we were lucky enough to have attend the festival.
A couple of my other favourite teachers were Canadian Sue Patten who shared some amazing tips and was a truly great educator and special guest from Germany Claudia Pfeil, who bought a collection of quilts with her that were on display in the Convention Centre. They were both wonderful characters and very giving with their time and knowledge.
Here is some of Claudia's amazing work -
All in all a fab weekend away - it's great to be home though and I've had a wonderful couple of days trying out some new techniques on customer quilts.
Lots more to share next week. Until then, happy quilting!
