Today you can take a relaxing virtual wander through the ‘Evolution of Quilting’ exhibition via the video I’ve just added. Evolution of Quilting was a great exhibition. In addition to having some truly awesome quilts, the early quilts also reassured those of us just starting out or with less experience that everyone has a first quilt and starts from humble beginnings and that with persistence great things can be possible.
There are many styles of quilts in the exhibition, from traditional to modern. If you are patient you’re sure to see some that impress you. The artists featured are all Australian, award winning quilters: Jenny Bowker, Helen Gray, Ann Haddad, Beth Miller, Margaret Rolfe, Carolyn Sullivan and Judy Turner.
And, watch out for the local landmark – the Big Merino – which is specially decked out for the Goulburn festival in it’s best and brightest scarf ! Goulburn has been a wool growing area since settlement in the 1800s with a proud textile heritage.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the eye candy 🙂
PS: Thanks to the gals who I went to the exhibition with – what a great day!
