This week a group of ladies and I flew to Brisbane to see the 200 year Quilt Exhibition at the QLD Art Gallery. We had a wonderful day, doing a guided tour that explained the stories behind each of the magnificent quilts and then spent the afternoon wandering the exhibit taking a closer look at the work involved in them.
Everyone agreed it was a fantastic exhibit and we all had a great day!
