Quilts in the Barn 2015

This weekend is the annual Quilts in the Barn, organised by Linda and her army of helpers. Today I spent a few hours admiring quilts and catching up with friends.

What a stunning welcome!

This beautiful quilt hung above the entrance to the barn.

The theme this year was scrappy quilts. Most of the quilts had no names associated with them, so I am sorry I cannot acknowlege the creators of these magnificent quilts.

This year Linda invited 2 guests from USA. Mary Koval came with a beautiful collection of old fabric and quilts available for purchase.

Jo Morton displayed several of her quilts.

Leonie Bateman had a small stall where fabrics designed by Mary and Jo, among others, were available for purchase.

Now for a few of the quilts.....

This stunner is the raffle quilt for this year. It was made by Jenny Bear using Jo Morton fabrics. It was quilted by Deb Burville. There is a pattern for this quilt available.

This quilt was entirely one inch squares!

Tiny flying geese:

More one inch squares used as a border:

A brave use of blue as the background..

Applique and piecing..

A small appliqued quilt

...and some detail...

I love this red and white....

If you are in the Wonga Park area, or would like to go for a lovely drive, tomorrow is the last day. The day starts at 10 am and finishes at 4pm, when the winners of the raffles will be drawn. Once again proceeds form admission, the food stall and the raffles are donated to breast cancer research. It is a wonderful day for a great cause!
