Town Centenary

My town will be celebratings its centenary next year. So the local patchwork group I belong to, have decided to make a quilt as a gift to the town.

We've commenced the "fun work" on this project. At the moment I've been making the birds. You can see one example below of our "Splended Blue Wren". The ruler is to show you the size of it.

Also some of our local buildings.

The old Dingup Church is just up the road from us (southerly direction).

The Balbarrup Post Office no longer exists, it was on our road, but in the northerly direction.





I have loved making these and there is more to do. Everyone is making a different "snap-shot" picture block of something historical or modern, which will be placed over a large background scenic picture, that represents much of the scenery around here.

  2. What an amazing quilt this is going to be. I'm sure it will become a treasured piece of your town's heritage.
