Springwood Quilt Show 2015

On Anzac Day, after the Dawn Service, we decided to head off down the mountains and visit the Springwood Quilt Show.  I have visited twice previously (here and here), but Mick has never been before.

Mick is good company at a quilt show, as he really appreciates the work and designs involved.  When mates look at him a little oddly when he tells them he has been to  quilt show, she assures them it is just like visiting an art gallery, only the medium used is fabric. 

This is a collage of Mick’s photos.

Now onto mine.

As you can see, there was the usual huge variety of styles of quilts.  The ladies of the Blue Mountains certainly are certainly a creative bunch.

While wandering around, I had the pleasure of meeting a fellow blogger, Blue Mountain Daisy.  She is just as delightful in person as in her blog.  Some of the most colourful quilts in the show were her creations.

In addition to the quilts there were some lovely stalls and a delicious lunch.

Yes, and here’s Mick, standing in the shade, waiting patiently for me to have my final look around.

It’s always a pleasure to visit this show and we will be back again in the future.

Thanks for sharing your pics. This year was supposed to be the year I finally made it to Springwood, but alas, it didn't happen again. Maybe next year. Mick is very patient, and I like his description of a quilts how as an art gallery.

I notice your collage is much larger than his!! :-)
We are lucky to have husbands who appreciate our efforts and those of other very clever people. And yes Mick is right, it's just another art show. Looks like he carried the shopping too, very small bag though, or did you carry your own and that was his? LOL

The collages of Mick's photos are like quilts in themselves. My hubby enjoys quilt shows for the same reason. Before I quilted we would visit art galleries now we look out for quilt shows. It was great to meet you both in real life!
