It was great to see my wonderful friend Jenny Kingwell on our arrived in Melbourne. She owns a delightful store Amitie which is full of the most amazing collection of very carefully hand picked fabrics from Japan, Liberty of London and America. She also has a great collection of silk screened fabrics from local gals in Australia.
It was a bit of a raining day so we spent the morning shopping on the streets around our hotel then we took the tram into the city. I just love Melbourne it is full of very interesting shops filled with very arty things.
I love the silk screened background used in this sample as well as the added bird and flowers to the piece below.
This block is from my Ginger Grove Quilt was shared by one of the students.
I love the combination of fabrics that Jan from Barnawartha used in this bag from my ‘Urban Sacs’ book. Look at the label. Fabulous!
