The Glenbrook Cocktail Quilters Show


It was a grey, rainy winters day here in the Blue Mountains, perfect for going to The Glenbrook Quilters Show with my friend Chris.

We didn't find any cocktails but there were lots of stunning quilts. Here's just a few...

Along side quilts made by members of the group were antique quilts from their private collections.
I love the sashing stripes and the mix of fabrics used in this Carpenter's Wheel quilt.

This 1,000 Pyramids quilt dates to the 1860's .

Here's one for the Liberty fans. Simply named The Liberty Quilt it was made by Jann Power using a pattern from the Quilter's Barn.


This starburst quilt made with colourful reproduction fabrics was such a joy to look at. Ohio Star Medallion was made by Sharon Duffy using a Judy Rothermel pattern.

Beautifully machine quilted by Kaye Brown. The simple circles on the star blocks is something I never would have thought of.

This wall hanging by Heather Friedel had us mesmerised. We were able to talk to Heather about her work and French Twist sounds like it was an exercise in precision and patience!

Just one more photo... not a quilt but two very cute vintage dolls!!

  1. That looks like a great show, Thanks for sharing the photos, there are some really lovely quilts there.
    I think I'd be tearing my hair out, and probably go bald trying to make French Twist. I will just admire it from afar.
