Town Centenary Quilt

Many hours have been spent working on our towns centenary quilt.

We have a number of smaller “snap-shot” blocks, sewn by a number of different ladies from our patchwork group, that will be randomly placed onto a large quilt background which is one big scene of a typical valley around here of vegetable crops, orchards, pasture, river and trees.

I was working on the “street-scape” snap-shot with another friend. We used old photo’s and recreated the buildings in fabric. It is all raw-edge appliquéd. Finishing touches were also sewn on like the flag poles, window frames, wheel spokes and horse reigns and so forth. I’ve embroidered on the business names and the clock markings on the shire office.

The quilt is basically finished now. Another friend is doing the quilting, before another sews on the binding. The quilt will be unveiled May 29th. I'll show photo's of it completed, once our town has seen it.
