Save the date for our 2017 exhibition to be held from May 5th to 7th at historic Brush Farm House in Eastwood.
If you are making the trip south to catch the Braidwood Airing of the Quilts on the weekend, make sure that you leave a little time to check out the Bungendore Quilters Exhibition as well. Its just a short drive across from Braidwood and the exhibition is always worth a look. You can link to their website here
For almost an hour, barely a sound except the racing machine motors, was heard!
One by one, the competitors finished and laid the quilts on the floor of the hall.
The results looked like a giant jewel coloured carpet and all were very happy with the result. Especially happy was Louise who finished in approx. 45 minutes; we hope that she didn’t eat all her prizes at the one time, a packet of jam (jelly) roll sponge cakes and a bag of jelly babies.
The resulting quilts were much admired and we all remarked on the speed and variety of the quilts made. It was declared a great success by all and lots of fun was had!
If you want to have your own jelly roll race, or just find out how to make the quilt you just need one jelly roll, a few spare hours and the instructions which you can find on this great YouTube clip
Jelly Roll Race 2 is a bit different, it shows how to add the squares and jelly roll race 3 inserts triangles.
