Waverley Patchworkers Quilt Show

 It's been four years but Waverley Patchworkers are having their quilt show this weekend. We were supposed to have a show in 2020, but we all know what happened that year. We were toying with the idea of having it in 2021 but we had the same problems.

Finally, our show is going ahead. I am sure the quilts will be beautiful, with so much time to prepare them.

The raffle quilt is called Chasing Rainbows and was made by members of Waverley Patchworkers and quilted by Naomi Hynes.

It's hard to tell from the photo but it's a really big quilt and so bright and colourful. Just what we need to brighten our days.

Here are a couple of detail photos.

The Show is held on Saturday the 4th of June - 9am to 5pm and Sunday the 5th of June - 9am to 4pm.

It is the same place that we had our last show in 2018. The Mulgrave Community Centre.

355 Wellington Road, Mulgrave. There is plenty of parking.

There will be quilt displays, shops and a café. We are also having a display of the Waverley Art Quilter's Working in a Series quilts.

All the things that we enjoy.

I hope that you can make it. I will be there on Friday helping to set up the show and on Saturday.

Unfortunately, I cannot be there on Sunday because I will be in Kyabram setting up my exhibition which is in conjunction with the Waverley Art Quilters. I'll post more on that next week.

I have also just returned from AQC, The Australasian Quilt Convention in Brisbane. I haven't had a chance to post about that either. Isn't it amazing how everything happens at once! It's certainly a busy time.

Bye for now,

aaaaah - a real live honest-to-goodness quilt show! Sounds like pure bliss. Our local guild has postponed theirs once again and now I think it might be scheduled for 2024.

Oh, what a shame, Magpie Mumblings, we had our first day today and it was a major success. People came from everywhere, they were so happy to be at a show.
