Posts With The Most

In my travels on the net it's always fun to come across things people have said about the Springwood Quilt Show. Here's some links to some bloggers' pages who have posts about the show.

Janice from jannimary came all the way from the Central Tablelands, NSW, to see the show.

r00ruu mentions the delicious refreshments the students of the High School provide.

Jenny of Stitches and Seams had a stall at the show. See photos of it, and some lovely quilts here.

Chris from Patchwork Fundamentals has a post with pictures of the unique treasures stall and more wonderful photos of quilts.

Rachael (that's me) from Blue Mountain Daisy has her view of being a first time entrant and volunteer at the show.

If you've done a post about the show or do in the future make sure you let us know and we'll create a link.

In the beginning

Welcome everyone to the first of many posts about the Springwood High School Community Quilt Show for 2011. How exciting to be up and running in blogland!
This is where you'll come to find out the latest news on what's happening in the lead-up to next year's show to be held over three days from 29th April to 1st May 2011.
Work has already started on the raffle quilt for next year which is being designed by Petal Davies and it's all hands on deck by members of the committee to do justice to her great vision.

Here's a sneak preview of the first layout of Petal's rendition of our wonderful Blue Mountains scenery to be depicted in a variety of fabrics and techniques.
Below is the box of 150 fat quarters we received as first prize for last years raffle quilt in the Group Category at Darling Harbour.
The ones in front will be incorporated in the quilt with others to be pieced as the backing.

We've started early for next year as there'll be a lot of work going into this magnificent quilt so pop back regularly to keep up with whats happening and please leave a motivating comment.
If you've got any queries about the show don't hesitate to ask in the comment section or by email.
