Lots to see at Quilt Show 2018

Have you picked up one of our postcards? They are to be found in all the places quilt lovers are likely to congregate; quilt shops, libraries, sit and sew events.

The beautiful quilt that has been the face of our show is by Mariya Waters, a member of Waverley Patchworkers.

The quilt is called Look at Me – Look at Me!

It is a portrait of the Eclectus Parrot, native of southern Queensland rainforests and is made up of 462 triangles and the background is quilted with gum leaves.

It was part of the AQC Made in Australia – Flora and Fauna challenge and has recently returned from exhibition in Mexico. Quite away for a small parrot to fly. It will have its own special place at our show, so you can see it for yourself.

There will be lots more birds showing off their plumage at Quilt Show 2018 because our challenge theme is Birds of a feather flock together. The winner is chosen by public vote. 

So fly across to Mulgrave Community Centre on the weekend of June 2 and 3 and Look at Us – Look at Us!
