Waverley Patchworkers Raffle Quilt

The Waverley Patchworkers Quilt Show is on this year. We have the quilt show every two years and it is a very well regarded show because we have many very talented quilters in our group.

We had our meeting on Monday night and this year's raffle quilt was unveiled to all. We have named the quilt Waverley Stars.

The Quilt was made by members of Waverley Patchworkers and it is beautifully quilted by Desley Maisano of Addicted to Quilts. Desley is a professional long arm machine quilter and we are very lucky that she has agreed to machine quilt our last three raffle quilts. I trust her work so much that I don't even suggest any particular quilting pattern; I just leave it up to her.

Here is a close up photo of the quilting.

Our quilt show is being held on Saturday 31st May and Sunday 1st June and we will have the raffle quilt on display. Tickets for the raffle will be $2 each.

I hope to see you there; the quilt show is a few months away now, so I will remind you closer to the time.

Bye for now,

This quilt is stunning, and the quilting itself...well it defies description! Thanks for the heads up on the dates - I've written them into my diary. Looking forward to the show; it just seems to get better every time!

Desley has done such a beautiful job with the quilting, she can make a nice quilt look special. Looking forward to catching up with you at the Quilt Show, Gina.
