Quilt Show 2018

June 2 and 3 was a brilliant weekend of sunshine and quilts. Revisit all the fun of our Quilt Show 2018 by reading theses posts.

Saturday at the Quilt Show    Quilt Show 2018 Award Winners    Sunday at the Quilt Show    Quilt Show results    Special offer for new members

Every two years the members of Waverley Patchworkers showcase their recent work. It is a highly regarded show, with visitors attending from all across Melbourne and regional Victoria. As well as the exhibition of quilts, there is the Birds of a Feather Flock Together challenge, special displays and demonstrations and a merchants mall. Our homemade goodies in the kitchen have developed a reputation of their own, making an extended stay very pleasant.
