I had several favourites and these appealed to me for their use of colour and their design. There were others that were gorgeous. and I could admire them for the work that had gone into them, such as the Baltimore quilts, but they are not "me". Some of my favs....
This was designed by Wendy Oswin at Quilter's Dream. It was called Ric Rac Jazz and she also had the pattern for it in her store in turquoises, hot pinks , purples and limes. I just had to have this! It was gorgeous.

This was made by Joanna Baynes using Kaffe Fassett fabrics from his book Quilts in the Sun.
This was made by Gea van Holst. I loved the colours in this and how she had pieced all her hexagons. The points all matched so perfectly as you can see below.
A mystery quilt by Natalie Murdoch and made by Jean Ramsay.
Justine Jones made this quilt for her daughter who stated quite firmly she didn't want anything traditional. I got talking to both Justine and her daughter and the inspiration came from a postcard and the daughter picked all the colours to go with their bedroom. It was quite stunning up close.
Carol Mahoney made this circle quilt. There were a few circle quilts there and the more I see these, the more I want to make one.
"Judith Bremner made this called "My Bedouin dress no longer fits" The fabric had been bought from the Spice Market in Istanbul and the dress from the Old City in Jerusalem.
Glenys Quinn made "Sawtooth Cats". It took me a while to figure out where the cats were!! Duh!
Sybil Lightbourne took a class with Hazel Foot and this was her first amazing effort in machine embroidery and free motion quilting. It is called Pacific Themes. A close up of the middle panel is on the right.
This is a design from Kaffe Fassett and won Best Use of Colour. It was made by Alison Haines and quilted by Susan Trendall.
I can detect a wee purple and turquoise theme going on in the quilts that I like. Will post more piccies tomorrow.
