A little bit of love has gone into every stitch of the quilts that will be displayed at the upcoming Bundaberg Quilters Mini Exhibition.
This year members of Bundaberg Quilters have had more time on their hands as COVID-19 put restrictions on their bi-annual exhibition, and now the School of Arts building is about to become a hive of activity.
Bundaberg Quilters Mini Exhibition coordinator Alisa Koloi said the School of Arts building would be decked out with beautiful quilts, gorgeous wall hangings and mats and baskets.
Alisa said weeks, months and sometimes years of work had gone in to making each individual quilt and each piece was made with love.
“The whole gallery will be completely filled with quilts,” Ailsa said.
“We had more entries then we can fit in!
“Members have been busy over the last two years creating beautiful pieces, and because we had to place out bi-annual exhibition in August on hold because of COVID-19 we have even more.
“Some of the quilts will be folded on a table as we don’t have the room for them, and there will be a display book for people to see what each of them look like, and possibly make a purchase.”
There will be a variety of quilts and craft items on sale during the exhibition, and Ailsa said it was the ideal time to purchase a handmade treasure for someone special.
“As well as the quilts for sale, we will have wall hangings, microwave bowl holders, mats, patchwork items, baskets and handbags,” she said.
“There is definitely going to be plenty to look at.
“Current COIVD-19 rules apply, so we will be allowed up to 32 visitors at any one time and entry is free.”
Bundaberg Quilters Mini Exhibition will open on 11 November between 2-4pm, and run daily from 9.30am on 12 November until 17 November.
Ailsa said people interested in learning the craft could also attend the Bundaberg Quilters Mini Exhibition to find out more information about the group.
