Great Photos from a Community of Quilters

A quick post for today – I just wanted to share with you an amazing collection of quilts that appeared at the recent Quilters Guild of NSW meeting at Goulburn. Check out the video for a an amble through the quilts.

I wanted to give particular mention to the Goulburn Quilters – there’s some photos of some great simple bright multi-coloured quilts with several people holding them up (just after the cream and teal quilt in the video). These fun, bright quilts are QFO quilts that the Goulburn Quilters donate to Anglicare in Goulburn – every kids who Anglicare works with gets a quilt of their own, with their name on it and a special message from the Goulburn quilters, so that the kids know that there are people who are about them. Not only is this great, but this small group of quilters has made 200 of these quilts in the last 2 years! Kudos to these special quilters in Goulburn.

Bert.

About bertcollections

I began quilting, with the help of some friends, in 2005, and have been quilting ever since. In that time, I’ve completed several projects in a variety of styles and colour combinations. My approach to quilting generally doesn’t involve using a particular pattern. I tend to have a concept I want to bring to life, or find a fabric on sale somewhere that looks like it could be turned into something fun. As the photos in the 'Introductions' post show, my quilts cross a range of styles, but generally use some strong colours and shapes.
