Art Quilts on Show

On Thursday the Victorian Quilters Showcase begins. It is part of the Craft and Quilt Fair which is held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, 2 Clarendon Street, South Wharf.

It starts on Thursday July 25th and finishes on Sunday 28th . It is open 9am to 5pm daily.

I always love going to the show and seeing all the shops and of course all the wonderful quilts. Being able to catch up with all my quilting friends is always a pleasure. Sometimes we only see each other at these shows but we just pick up from where we left and find out what we've been up to.

This year we have a more exciting reason to be there, The Waverley Art Quilters have been asked to mount a display of our Art Quilts!

The Waverley Art Quilters meet once a month and discuss a different artist or technique. After our discussions and further study we make an A3 sized quilt inspired by the topic.

We have chosen 10 different topics to display and I really hope that you come along and see our quilts.
Those of you who read my blog will have seen my efforts so I'll give you a sneak peak at some of my fellow Art Quilters quilts.

I hope that I have tempted you and I really hope that you come by and say hello. I will be there on Thursday, Friday and Sunday and there will be someone from our group at the display every day.

Bye for now,

I'm on duty at the Embroiderers Guild stand on Thursday, but I hope to get some time off and have a quick look around, so I'll come and find your quilts display Linda!

That's a shame that you can't be there, Jude. I have a Christmas Crazy Quilt in the show and I'll find out tomorrow if I've won a prize!
