After three days of talking about SAQA's "This is a Quilt" and answering all manner of questions about processes, techniques and the inspiration behind them it is time to head east. It was fantastic meeting so many people interested in the exhibition and quilts more generally. One man kept coming back and visited the SAQA quilts for a few hours - he was deeply moved by the art. We were positioned adjacent to the Bunbury International Quilt Challenge - wonderful to watch the responses to "both sides of the aisle". Best surprise for me was the arrival of Lois, a fellow 2QAQer on holiday in West Australia, who came and worked on the SAQA demonstration table yesterday - we had such a positive interaction with passers-by.Thank you Lois - what a wonderful surprise!
