First up is my favourite - Fabulous Feathers by Carol Newsham. It's a Kim McLean pattern from Glorious Applique, made with Kaffe Fassett fabrics (in my favourite shades) and all hand quilted. All my favourite elements in one quilt.
|All those ribbons!|
|look at all that hand quilting|
I just loved this - Carol has done an amazing job with all the applique and the hand quilting.
I'm not sure how this was made, but I think I need to take a class with Rosemary Rush in the near future to find out. I'd love to make something similar myself.
|My Nearly Insane Journey by Sue Flego|
My mum is making a Nearly Insane quilt in blue and white, so we took great interest in this one.

You can see a totally different selection of quilts from the Auckland Festival of Quilts on my friend Shirley's blog - Don't Wait to Create. I love that two people can go the same show and choose very different highlights.
