As a Brit now living in N.S.W., I can no longer get to The Festival of Quilts at the N.E.C. in Birmingham, so I was delighted to have this snapshot of some of the winning quilts and to hear comments from some of the judges.
My U.K. quilter friends have also been able to view in person the brilliant work of some of the Australian artists.
