The program is finally released for next year's AQC in Melbourne in April - details here. The event is billed as Australia's largest event dedicated specifically to quilting.
And I will be one of the tutors! How amazing is that - finally playing with the big kids. There are 13 different tutors - 3 from the US, 1 from the UK and 1 from Japan as well as lots of famous Australian quilters. Hope I can keep up!

I will be doing 2 x 2-day classes on this quilt - Jacobean Star and two blocks from my Lots of Dots quilt.

Lots of Dots has been chosen as one of five by the NSW Quilters Guild to represent the Best of the Best from our state. I am so pleased to be part of this event.

The quilt has also been featured in the latest issue of Quilt Mania - pics were taken when they were at Darling Harbour this year. There is a write up on the Castlemaine Applique Group and Linda from Quilts in the Barn. It is a lovely issue and shows that Australia is keeping up or even surpassing the rest of the quilting world. Well done.
