Our quilts at Sydney Quilt Show 2019

Quilts made by our members that are hanging in the Sydney Quilt Show this week, include two entered in the group category, both made from our forty 2018 Quilt Show challenge blocks.

The 2018 challenge blocks have provided great value -  as a group activity, as a block display at our 2018 quilt show, as an entry into the 2019 Sydney Quilt Show, as our major raffle prize for 2020 raising funds for a local not-for-profit, and as a beautiful quilt for the winner.

The second quilt will also be used as a fundraiser for a community organisation.  And we have one more plan for using them to raise funds, to be revealed at next year's Fairholme Quilt Show. These quilts have worked hard, for great benefit!

Fairholme will have the group members' table in the Quilt NSW area of the show floor on Saturday 22 June - come and see a few of our quilts, talk to us, and you can also buy tickets in our 2020 raffle. We'd love to see you there.

'All That Jazz' will be our raffle quilt for our 2020 Quilt Show.
 Both quilts were put together by Val and Roslyn, and 
machine quilted by Yvette.

'Razzamattazz' is the second quilt made from the 2018 
challenge blocks, hanging at Sydney Quilt Show this week. 

Some individual members also have quilts hanging in the show:

Jenn's 'Turn Her Into a Mountain' - display label below

Jo's 'Little Deer' - display label below

Jill's 'Pickled Sharks', quilted by Yvette.
The display label reads:  My son saw the Pickled Fish blocks
I made for another quilt, and asked for a "Pickled Shark" quilt.
He chose the layout and the colours to reflect his favourite
NRL teams. The quilting design is called 'Sails' but could
be interpreted as shark fins.
