Well, it's less than 1 month before our Biennial Quilt Show and Sale, whew, lots of gals have worked very hard over the past months to make sure that the Quilt Show is just as wonderful as always. There has been an amazing array of quilts and smaller quilted goodies shared within the group both for display and sale at the Show, so you, our many visitors, are in for a real treat.
The show will be held at the Buderim Craft Cottage, 5 Main Street, Buderim on Friday 23rd June to Sunday 25th between the hours of 9a.m. and 4p.m. Entry is $5 and there will be traders tables as well as our own goodies for sale. Refreshments with complimentary tea or coffee will also be available.
Our raffle quilts this year are very special. First we have 'Weerona' (Aboriginal for resting place) featuring some truly beautiful aboriginal print fabrics. The pattern - with a little mathamatical tweeking from Sheila - is based on renowned New Zealand quilter Joyce Jones pattern 'Mikasa Sukasa'. Joyce very kindly donated her pattern to us and also suggested the use of aboriginal prints in the design. Thank you very much Joyce for your genorosity and support, it is greatly appreciated by our group.
Our second raffle quilt is 'Purple Passion', created by Janice with Beryl stitching the binding. Janice was inspired by a Christine Cohrs pattern 'Pinwheel Delight' from a back issue of Down Under Quilts.
Both quilts have lovely machine embroidered labels courtsey of Wendy
