Hallet Cove Quilt Show

In 2005 a small group of quilters displayed their work at an exhibition in a church hall.  I was tidying my cupboard this afternoon and found a disc with the photo's on it, never seen before.  Several quilts by a beautiful friend who passed away unexpectedly a few years later brought back memories of a special time spent with these ladies....

Our Raffle Quilt- Pattern by Mary Rothe- the money went to the SOUP organisation (Supporters of Uganda's Poor)

The quilt our group made and donated to 'The Little Livers' to raffle

Quilts by 15 year old Jessica (my clever daughter)

Marie made a queen sized quilt for each of her children when they turned 21. These were the two boys quilts. Sadly her daughters quilt was unfinished when she died two years later  and our group happily finished it for her 21st.

Erica's quilt created optical illusions
Janise' interpretation of 'Man's first step on the moon'
Debby's first ever quilt on the right... fabulous!
Cathy's own design was all handpieced (my cross and nine-patch to the right)

Lyns pastel delight
My 'Double Pink Delight'
My Lone Star
Wendy's amazing Lone Star with applique
Raeleen, Cathy and Rosemary's quilts

Some modern quilts by Andrea and  Jennifer, the charity quilt and on the bed a quilt I made for my eldest son.
At the exhibition we sewed together blocks for a quilt that we donated to a charity. Sewing away on the weekend was our beautiful Marie. Whenever a group quilt was being sewn for someone sick or a charity I could always rely on Marie to be there sewing non-stop until the project was complete.


  1. Some beauties there - and so varied - thanks for posting them all. The raffle quilt was gorgeous - and the lone stars too!
    Every Stitch

    I love a good show with a diverse collection of styles and colors.

  3. Thanks for the memories!! I remember that lovely show, and how hard you all worked to get it together.

  4. Hi Penny,

    Such a wonderful quilt show - Mum and I remember it very fondly. We loved all of your SOUP shows, we had such a wonderful time.

    Hope you and yours are all well - we're all going swimmingly here.

    All our love,

    Suzie and Kate (Renmark)

    1. Hi Suzie and Kate, Those quilt Exhibitions were fun. It was always good to catch up with you when we had them. Hope you and your families are great as well. Your babies must be growing up I am sure!
      Love to you both xx
