A fun Melbourne weekend for the Australian Quilt Market!

Last year I set up the AustralianSewingPattern.com, a collective of Australian designers so we could band together and get to the the Australian Quilt Market in Melbourne. This year I was joined by Michelle Long of Lemon Jellie Stitches.

A.Q.M is a cool place to catch up with other designers like Nicole Mallalieu (You Sew Girl), Tammy Green (Buddies Corner and Studio T Green!) Jodie Carleton (Vintage Ric Rac) and  Emma Jean Jansen

And I got to meet one of Australia’s most respected softie designers, and someone I have been in awe of for many years, Melanie McNiece of Melly & Me!  Her softies are sooooooooooooooo cute and

she is just THE nicest person too!

I was ”EXHAUSTIPATED”!!!
