Eastwood Patchwork Quilters Biennial Exhibition

Here's another quilt show I look forward to. The Eastwood show is held every two years and there are always quilts that appeal, no matter what style of design you like.

Held at historic Brush Farm House, the show also includes displays of fabric postcards, 12x12 display, craft stall and a café, as well as vendors selling truly tempting items.

Sales of tickets for the two raffle quilts (shown here) will aid fundraising for The Special Olympics, a worldwide movement that inspires children and adults with an intellectual disability to reach their personal best through regular sport and competition.

The raffle quilts both feature Canyon Star blocks. Each member was asked to make at least five blocks and were given blue fabric for the stars and a mix of green  fabrics for the centre triangles. Each quilter then added three different fabrics to complete each block. Aren't they stunning?
