This show had a small display of modern quilts made by the members of the Quake City Modern Quilters (link takes you to their Facebook page only) They are a small group of ladies local to Newcastle and their quilts were stunning. I thought I would share some of those I really liked.
The photo doesn't do this one justice - you can't see the lovely work on it, and the lighting in this corner was terrible. It was made by Catherine Mosely from a pattern by Jen Kingswell

If you have read my blog before, you will have guessed that I am very fond of applique. This quilt had a mix of pieced blocks and appliqued ones.
This one is constructed using half square triangles. There was a lot of movement in that quilt.

The next one is also by Wendy Nutt.

I have seen lots of photos of "brick" quilts on the Net, but Susan Horvath has extended that concept and used scrappy fabrics to construct the "bricks". It is really effective.

This last one, I can't credit. :( There were two quilts side by side, both exceedingly different and one label between the two quilts, with no clue as to which quilt it belonged to. As the quilts were so different in style etc. I chose not credit it in case I mention the wrong maker. If you know the name of the quilter, please tell me and I will edit this post to give credit.
At the start of this post I mentioned that this was basically a trader's show. Well of course I bought one or two things. But that will be fodder for my next post, so you will just have to wait a while. Promise it won't be too long.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
