What happens next?

It's less than a month until the show so it's all go go go from here on in.

A huge thank you to everyone who have entered their quilts. We wouldn't have a quilt show if it wasn't for you. So now we have all the entries what happens next?

All the information about the quilts is compiled into spread sheets. Using this information Marilyn does the huge job of creating a hanging plan. She is a wonder woman with figures and organising and always does an amazing job. The hanging plan is important for a few reasons. Firstly so we know how many quilt frames and what size quilt frames we need to order. It's the master plan that everyone follows on the day of hanging the show. In addition to that each quilt is allocated a number that corresponds with where it hangs and this is invaluable for organising the collection of the quilts at the end of the show.

Volunteers will get an email in a few weeks to notify them of their shifts.We believe that "Many hands make light work" so the more volunteers the better. If you can spare some time to help set up or during the show just fill in the Volunteer Form on the right hand side of the screen or email us at springwoodquiltshow@hotmail.com. If you want to know more about the different ways you can help out during the show read this post .

In the meantime you can get your quilts ready by making sure they have a label and a hanging sleeve with a minimum of 8cm. If you're not quite sure how to make a hanging sleeve follow this link to an easy tutorial.

We'll be back soon to tell you the next stop on the raffle quilt hop.


  1. I would have loved to enter the quilt I made for my niece, who lives in Bullaburra, but I've spent the last three months in and out of hospitals and the time just went! Oh well, maybe next year! Love the show and wouldn't dream of missing it (even if I end up in hospital yet again (!) and have to get a day pass to come!

  2. Hi Robyn,
    Thank you for your comment. Time does fly by doesn't it. I hope you're on the mend now. You've missed the entry deadline this year but it means you'll have a quilt ready for next years show. We look forward to seeing you at the show.


We always appreciate you taking the time to comment.
