Heathcote Quilters Biennial Quilt Exhibition - 2016


On Sunday 9 October 2016, Mum and I visited the Heathcote Quilter's Biennial Quilt Exhibition which was held at the RSL Hall in High Street, Heathcote - just a short 45-minute drive from my home in Bendigo.  Entry was only $7.00





I didn't take many close up photos of individual quilts as you can see from the above photos the rows were very narrow which made photography difficult.  

Here are a few highlights:

"Op Shop Wonder" by Liz Allen.
This was made using a vintage tablecloth found in an opportunity shop.
The quilting on this is amazing!!

"Op Shop Wonder" - this is the back of the "quilt" showing the beautiful quilting.
This was professionally machine quilted by Liz Allen at Thimble 'N' Thread

"Spinning Stars" by Anne Anderson

I love it when they have stalls selling goods!  Mulberry Lane Quilting (Kangaroo Flat), Canterbury Quilts (Eaglehawk) and The Patchwork Tea House (Warburton) were all there together with one or two others.

A huge thank you to Alison at Canterbury Quilts in Eaglehawk for posting this on her Facebook page on Saturday.  If she hadn't of done so I would not have known that this was on!

This is how I found out about the exhibition as it was not very well publicised.


I had limited money on me however this was my haul of goodies courtesy of Mulberry Lane Quilting.
