Patchwork at the Lilydale Show

Agricultural and Horticultural Shows have a long tradition in demonstrating and supporting the rural way of life through competitions involving farm animals, rural skills, produce and arts and craft. The Lilydale Show Society was formed in 1953 and holds an annual show on the third Saturday and Sunday in November.  The following report on the Patchwork section is from Waverley member Cheryl Lowe.

The Lilydale Show is over for another year and what a great success it was. The entries in Patchwork was down on previous years but the quality was amazing. We had mainly large Quilts.  The winning quilt was a wonderful butterfly quilt by Ann Burrows. The runner up was won by Sue Moss with a very different butterfly quilt. Mavis Bell entered a beautiful white knitted rug.  Waverley Patchworkers very generously sponsors the show which is spread over all the winners in Patchwork.

Waverley Patchworkers sponsors the prizes each year to encourage patchwork and quilting in this community which is half town, half country and one where a number of our members reside.
