Australasian Quilt Convention

I am excited to be attending the Australasian Quilt Convention which is on from April 14 - 17 at the Royal Exhibition Buildings in Carlton. 

I am particularly looking forward to seeing the entries in the APQ Seven Deadly Sins Quilt Challenge.  This year I was fortunate enough to have my quilt "Envy" juried in as one of the 30 finalists in the challenge.  As a result of participating in the Quilt Challenge this article appeared in today's edition of our local newspaper, the Northcote Leader.  Click on either the link or the photo below to read the article.

You may recall my quilt "Envy" from previous posts - be sure to look out for it if you are attending the Quilt Convention.

I hope those attending the Australasian Quilt Convention have a great time - I am sure I will!
