Display of quilts pays tribute to Anzacs

THE Gold Coast Quilters Guild held its Biennial Quilt Exhibition at The Arts Centre Gold Coast during July and early August.

The event showcased artistic creativity with various techniques used in the making of the many quilts, all on display for the first time.

To commemorate the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, a display of quilts made by Guild members to pay tribute to "ANZACS - 100 Years" was an integral part of the event.

As well, Bravehearts was supported at this year's exhibition, with proceeds from the sale of handmade Christmas decorations and other gift items donated to this worthy charity.

No one was left out, with visitors having the opportunity to win two eye-catching, member-made quilts.

The raffle was drawn on the last day of the exhibition.

Gold Coast Quilters Guild members meet at 9am on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Community Centre, Christine Ave, Burleigh Waters. Visitors are welcome. See: http://www.gcqg.info/.

President is Claire Irving, email: president.gcqg@gmail.com; Secretary Carole Woolnough, mobile: 0439 737 448. Nancye Tammes convened the exhibition: 0419 782 435.
