Bonnie Hunter's Dancing Nine Quilt Workshop

What a productive day we all had at our wonderful Bonnie Hunter workshop.
We initially had Bonnie booked for a weekend workshop as she was set to tour Australia,  unfortunately her trip was cancelled.
 But, not all was lost, we had our wonderful Kilmore Quilter Maryanne to take the workshop for the day.
Above is Maryanne's version of the Dancing Nine Pattern quilt.

This quilt is a great scrap buster , thanks for a wonderful day Maryanne.

For those of you who don't know of Bonnie Hunter, she is the master of scrap quilts ! 
Her blog is well worth a visit, lots of eye candy as well as free patterns.

Our 2016 Quilt In

On October 8th 2016 we saw another successful annual Quilt In.

A beautiful display of Honour Quilts by our Kilmore Quilters.

A wonderful day of stitching with friends while listening to our guest speaker
Janette McInnes.

Janette shared with us her love of antique quilts dating back to the 1840's,
 and we were lucky enough to view some of her stunning collection during her Trunk Show.

Melbourne Period Project also spoke about their work with disadvantaged women in the
community spreading awareness about their program.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year !
