Springwood Community Quilt Show


There will be 190 fabulous quilts at the Springwood Community Quilt show this year, including this fabulous raffle quilt. Tickets are $2 each or three for $5, with all proceeds going to the Blue Mountains Rural Fire Service.


The guest quilter this year is Nerida Richmond Benson. I've had the pleasure of knowing Nerida for many years as she contributed many of her quilts as projects in Down Under Quilts magazine. Many of her quilts reflect her love of Japanese fabrics and her skill in sashiko stitching are evident in many of her quilts


More recently, Nerida has been exploring more abstract designs. She has created several quilts with pockets that contain small souvenirs from bushwalks in the local area. Her quilts are stunning!

The show is on from Friday 26 April to Sunday 28 April, 10am to 4pm each day at Springwood High School. You'll find more information on their blog.
