Well over 250 quilts are on display this year at QuiltWest for your enjoyment. This years’ theme category is “Solids” and these quilts are sure to amaze you as you view the creative and imaginative skills of our WAQA members.
As well as our members display, there are several other exhibitions and challenges that will provide a visual feast for your enjoyment. Be sure to take a look at the travelling exhibitions which tour all states of Australia. These being, The Best of Australia quilts, 2014 AQC ‘Ten’ Challenge and Living Colour.
Displays by our members include WA feature artist Yvonne Skodt, the WAQA Annual Challenge, ‘Tickle me Fancy’ as well our regular group displays. New this year is the ‘Dear Jane’ group display and ‘Christmas in May’.
You will be delighted by the wide range of colour, design and texture there is to view throughout the exhibition. Each quilt is very personal to its’ maker and often depicts the story, thoughts or a memory special to that person.
We hope you enjoy our exhibition. If it inspires the idea in you that I could do that, we would love to welcome you to our Association. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to talk to one of the WAQA members on duty during the show.
