In September 2014, Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork / European Patchwork Meeting celebrates its 20th anniversary in Alsace, France. Australia is the guest country of honour from outside of Europe.
Australia Quilts is an invitational exhibition curated by Brenda Gael Smith to showcase the diversity of Australian quiltmaking. There are 34 featured artists and I was thrilled to have one of my quilts selected for this exhibition.
At present the quilts in the collection are making their way over to France including my quilt Purple Haze.

Brenda has put together a beautiful website - Australia Quilts - Exceptional Quilts from the Great Southern Land to showcase the quilts that are part of the collection and to learn more about the featured artists. I encourage you to take this opportunity to view this stunning collection of Australian quilts online.
If only I could accompany my quilt to France ...
