Quilts Revisited overview

At the beginning of the month I held an exhibition of Repro. quilts from our students from the past few years.
I must say I was extremely happy with how it all looked. With a theme like that, all the quilts enhanced each other.
Rhonda Mathews of Aldgate won the Viewers Choice with her delightful, 'Pond House' quilt.
Jessica looked after The Patchwork Apple shop. She had a display also of The Red Cherry Pattern Collection's quilts.
Beautiful refreshments were served by Sarah and friends, amongst my antique quilt collection.
 Sarah and her 'clever' fella made this great little video of our exhibition. I  hope this gives you an overview of how it all looked. All of you who didn't make it...this is only half of what you missed! Enjoy....

Quilts Revisited Exhibition-this weekend!

'Quilts Revisited' Exhibition is on this weekend!
Woodside Institute
Onkaparinga Valley Road,
10am - 4pm
 We have been rather busy getting ready for our first ever exhibition for The Patchwork Apple. A reproduction quilt extravaganza!! Due to the high amount of classes, BOM, patterns, etc. etc. in repro. fabrics, I decided to get a few of the quilts together and show them off. 
All the pinning of sleeves have been done...we started tacking but we have done 32 so we ended up pinning....
 I actually have attached 'some' labels to my own quilts. Should have been done years ago.
 All the labels for each quilt have been printed...I hope.

Quilts have started arriving and its looking good!
So if you have some time over the weekend, come and visit us and have a browse.
The 'Paper Bag Challenge' was held last year. A small group of ladies participated and their interesting quilts will be displayed.
The Patchwork Apple will be onsite for sales.
The Red Cherry Pattern Collection will have their quilts on display also with patterns available.
Antique quilt display
Refreshments available.
