FART - Fabric Acquistion Road Trip

Yesterday a couple of friends and I went to the Rangitikei Club Show in Marton.  We left at 7.30 am and the weather was amazing.. a little windy but lovely once we got to the other side of the hills of course.  (By the time we got back to Wellington it was still raining!! 

Here's some pics of quilts I thought were amzing and clever. 

this is all cotton on cream fabric.  Amazing technigues
Close up.  Amazing.  Was my viewers choice.

Another one with amazing quilting effects

there were so many quilts and such little room you couldn't get a good photo of them, but I love the use of doillies on quilts.  I've been collecting some and this is very inspirational.
Close up
These are Jinny Beyers fabrics from 2005.  I was given a 5" charm pack of the same fabrics. (which I haven't used yet)!
Beautiful, such a lot of work
I love this.  The colours, the techniques .. just gorgeous
A great design using NZ fabrics. 
this one is amazing.  All the flowers and leaves are 3 D.  I hope you can blow the photo up so you can see the detail
I love this tree.. wool used for the truck.. wonderful use of textiles
To everyone who took part in organising this show Congratulations.  And the vendors.. yummy.  Batiks $10, $12 and $16.  I can't help myself.  Thanks to the travelling batik guy.. Milton Wright.. hehe I am an addict.
