Featured Quilter for 2017

We're pleased to announce that Anne Sommerlad is our featured quilter for the 2017 Springwood Community Quilt Show.

Anne is a Blue Mountains quilter and prolific pattern writer who teaches throughout Australia. If you haven't attended a class with her you have most likely seen her name appear in Australia's leading quilt magazines. She has just finished a DVD filming for Quilters Companion (#81) featuring machine applique products and also has projects in the current issues #80 and upcoming issues #82, #83.

Anne's techniques cross the whole spectrum of quilting from piecing, foundation piecing, machine and hand applique in styles from traditional to modern. Here are some pictures of just a few of her many quilts to show you the variety of styles she works in.

You can see we're in for a treat to see a whole display of her quilts taking center stage at the show! To see more of Anne's quilts visit her website and wander through the 5 pages of quilt patterns. With so many beautiful quilts to choose from it'll make you wonder how will she decide which ones to hang at the quilt show.
