Inspiring highlights of the Festival of Quilts for 2019

Quilter in Residence 2019: Rachelle Denneny
Rachelle Denneny is no stranger to the South Australian quilting community. Her passion is machine quilting on a domestic machine and she has won at many quilt shows, both nationally and internationally.  In recent years Rachelle has released her own range of patterns:  Rachelle Denneny Designs.

Challenge Theme: Tropical Vibes
Create a quilt that reflects the theme, no side longer than 100cm



Hexies Honeycomb Project:

Create a 15” “Tropical Vibes” square, and we will cut it into a hexie to display our honeycomb at the Festival of Quilts 2019. Squares may be delivered to the Festival of Quilts table at any Guild meeting


Festival of Quilts 2019 Raffle, net proceeds to beyondblue
This year’s quilt, “Sea Change” was created by Prue Wheal and quilted by Heather Hopkins. It is a very vibrant quilt, in line with our “Tropical Vibes” theme.  Tickets will go on sale early in 2019 when we launch the Festival of Quilts 2019.

The beneficiary of this raffle is “beyondblue”, a national organisation which provides services to the many Australians who suffer from mental illness.  Did you know that over 3 million Australians suffer from anxiety or depression?
