Brisbane Craft & Quilt show visit

I visited the Brisbane Craft & Quilt on Saturday. It was some visual and mental candy. 

I loved this it is so different to what I do. 
Interesting, inspiring just exquisite. 
There was so much work on so many quilts. 

Note to self. Make a show quilt

rows and rows.

I love the message on this one.. also in the free challenge

this one was a modern quilt. also interesting.

My haul - I have been wanting Julie Hermans (Jaybird quilts) rulers for a while. I have no idea when I will get time to make one of Julie's designs... lol just keeping it real maybe next year. 
Or maybe some christmas gifts. 

These are for quilt making not my shop. yah.

a skinny 2 inch ruler and

I have really been wanting grippy things for some of my rulers. Yah I have yet to test these yet. 
Very happy... I got the majority of my stuff from Punch with Judy. 

I also got some 2.5" Moda Charms. - Fifi's Fabricology
For my growing collection for my postage stamp quilt aka (vomit). 

Super cute

At least I get to keep abit of scrumptious... 

I love my baby but It was great to have a kid free look around. It was awesome actually. 

I did keep getting turned around and I missed 3 isles for a bit but caught up eventually. 
Yip I'm a complete ditz.

I had some fun playing with a few sewing machines hooked onto frames. 
They were a real good set up so smooth and light. 
Unfortunately the Bernina even though it was 
est $32000 cheaper then the Gammill still to me unaffordable at $8000 but boy it worked so well aagghhh dreaming one day. promise to myself.

I did have a play with the Brindabella Quilting system more affordable.... 
Do you still call that long arm quilting.? 
They moved so well I was really impressed. Is there anything I should look out for when looking into these systems. let me know pretty please..

I also caught a lady speaking about making money from your craft. 
This was interesting and in some ways informative. I think she is the Burlap Bag Lady. But I didn't actually see anything with her name on it and I got there after introductions...

Even the pamphlet I got with  $100 coupon doesn't have her name. 
Weird If anyone knows who that was please enlighten me..

One of the stand out stores for me was


I bought nothing but loved a lot of what was there.
If I make a quilt for my Ma this is where I will look for inspiration.

All n all had a ball!!
