Quilt show and Trudy’s quilt

We are having fun at the Boonah Quilt Show today and tomorrow. Hope you get a chance to visit because there are some beautiful quilts on display.

The nicest is of course ours shown here-

We have finally received permission from the Blue Nurses to hold a raffle for this quilt, the whole proceeds of which will be donated to them.

For those who don’t know – Trudy, a good friend of ours passed away last year and we decided to make a group quilt in her memory and raffle it for her favourite charity (Blue Nurses). She loved flowers and her favourite colours were red and orange so that was the basis of the colour scheme.

Thirty two Apatchy Quilting girls worked on this quilt and thirty blocks make up the front with another used for the label on the back. The quilt is called “Flowers for Trudy”

The raffle will be drawn at our Christmas party on 6th December 2014. Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5. Good luck!

Here are some more pictures from Boonah

In case you’re wondering the last two photos were taken just now just before closing time. There’s no way I could have taken a photo this morning because it was packed!

We were rushed off our feet with a lot of quilt groups making a day of it here. We said hello to some girls from the Beenleigh Quilters, some from Stanthorpe and many more.

Jan was busy doing demos with the Kanzashi flower tools. It was standing room only.

Come and say hello tomorrow if you’re in the area.

  1. Trudy’s Quilt looks fantastic. I hope lots of tickets are sold to help the Blue Nurses continue their marvellous job helping people like Trudy. I think you had better have lots of tickets on hand at the shop because I am sure you will be inundated with requests.

  2. What an amazing group of ladies my mother new and loved. ‘Trudy’s Quilt’ is just beautiful, you all new her so well. I shed a tear when I saw it but for happiness not sadness. How many of us in our life can say that the most wonderful group of aspiring women made a quilt in honour of ourselves and our friendship. I am sure many tickets will be sold, Thank you for remembering. Trudy’s loving daughter.
