No I'm not lucky enough to make it to Brisbane for the show but I am lucky enough to have a lovely friend, Brenda who did get to Brisbane and lent me her book to have a drool over.
Most of the other quilts are much older than this but I think that's why this tugged at the heart, these girls were only 8 to 16 years of age at the time and they would now be about 10 years older than my Mum which somehow made it more real. The Rajah quilt is there too, which I would love to see, amazing to think it was sewn in the bottom of a ship.
It was very interesting with lots of the quilt's histories were known even a very utilitarian quilt which was made from offcuts from the pajama factory! If you're lucky enough to be in Brisbane it's a must see.
