EPathfinders, a WAQA sewing group, was set up for the purpose of making and exhibiting quilts inspired by the Drunkards Path block (quarter of a circle inside a square). The group comprises Sue Rule, Robyn Clout, Lesley Clugston, Sharon Brown, Natalia Tasovac, Pat Forster and Liz Humphreys.
We agreed to make four 60inch x 60inch quilts each, over two years. We sewed independently and met about every four months for show and tell.
The project has been terrific fun and really pushed us to be innovative, especially when we each viewed the most recent masterworks of others in the group!
The culmination of our efforts is an exhibition in Katanning Regional Gallery October 26 – December 7.
It is a fabulous, well lit, spacious gallery so perfect for the large bold quilts. Every patchwork/quilting technique imaginable is represented, and the quilting shows up marvelously in the gallery lighting.
You will never see quilts in a better spot than this, so why not visit? Feedback is that local people are really enjoying the exhibition, particularly the art and craft groups.
There is passing traffic too since the Gallery is in the same building as the library. We cannot thank James Wood (the gallery curator) enough for offering us the gallery and for his arrangement of the quilts. Gallery hours are
Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri 10.00am – 5.00pm
Wednesday 1.00pm – 5.00pm
Saturday 10.00am – 1.00pm
An added bonus to visiting the exhibition is that you can enjoy coffee or lunch in the Premier Mill Dome Café. Premier Mill has been recently renovated and is a super building to visit.
