|This one had metallic paint and metallic quilting - the photo doesn't do it justice, it glowed in the afternoon light.|

There was a Something Borrowed Something Blue exhibition from the UK,
and a challenge for New Zealand quilters to use particular fabric and make a small quilt that was not allowed to be rectangular. That had some interesting interpretations.
South African quilts were also there, based on the theme of Dreams.
Australia Wide Three was a very interesting exhibition, showcasing how the artists responded to a challenge from the Ozquilt Network Inc. It looked like it had been an enormous amount of work.
12x12 group's exhibition of their last challenge, based on colour.
Best of the Best was an exhibition of quilts that had won exhibitions around the country, as was Best of Australia.
I made sure to see all the quilts before I ventured out to the stalls. I didn't want to be too exhausted before getting to the quilts. I actually managed to spend very little money at the stalls, I was very pleased with myself. All in all, a lovely day.
There was so much to look at that I hope I haven't left out any works.
