This year it has been organised by Sue de Vanny and myself on behalf of Victorian Quilters.
Last Saturday we had the opening at the wonderful Bundoora Homestead to a very large crowd of people.
Here is a photo of Sue and myself with the 2 judges a couple of days before the opening. The judges this year were award winning art quilter Jan Frazer and Art teacher Edwina Cherry.

As I said there were so many other wonderful textile works on display, I was so glad that I didn't have to pick the winners.
If I get a chance I'll post some of the other work later in the week.
The exhibition is on until the 1st September at the historic Bundoora Homestead. 7 Prospect Hill Drive, Bundoora
Bundoora Homestead is open Thursday to Sunday 10am to 5pm
There is also a lovely cafe on site.
I will be there again in a couple of weeks.
On Saturday 3rd August at 2pm because there are going to be floor talks with 4 of the artists.
Be for now,
