Waverley Art Quilters Display

The Waverley Art Quilters were very honoured to be asked to display our work at the recent Victorian Quilters Showcase 2013.

The Waverley Art Quilters were formed in 2007 and for the first two years we studied design and composition using the book 'Art Quilt Workbook' by Jane Davila and Elin Waterson. Since then we have been challenged every month to study an artist or technique and make a small quilt inspired by the subject. These works are not required to be quilting show standard but they are opportunities to study many varied techniques and materials on a small scale. Creating a small quilt every month can be challenging but the knowledge we have gained and the fellowship of sharing our love of art and quilting is worth it.

We set up on the day before the show opened and here we are looking very glamorous in our safety vests.

We tried to have one of our members sitting with our quilts at all times to answer any questions and to look after our quilts.

Here is a photo of me in front of our display.


We had 10 different subjects on display and I'll show you a few photographs.

We had so many wonderful compliments and I would like to thank those of you who came along to see our quilts.

 I felt a bit sad when we had to pack them up on Sunday night.

 Bye for now,

They were all fantastic, Linda - so much variety and skill there.
I received the DVD today -thanks heaps! Haven't played it yet, but will do very shortly ;-)

I am glad that it got there, Gina. I think that it is a cd though and you might only be able to play it on a computer. I haven't tried the DVD player.

Thanks Cathie,

It's a shame that you couldn't be there this year. You were missed!
