Craft and Quilt Show, Melbourne - July 2019

I haven't been to one of the major quilt shows in Melbourne for a few years, so it was fun to go to this one last week and see what quilters are doing these days.  I didn't take a lot of photos - I only took pics of the ones that appealed to me.  Many quilts at these shows are to me the same year after year - the large heavily appliqued traditional floral quilts, and I have to admit they don't appeal to me at all, despite the huge amount of work that goes into them.  It is all about personal choice isn't it.
So what do I like in quilts?  Japanese themes, bright colours, quirky designs, some intricate machined motifs (but not always), and plainer simple designs that I think I could do.
