Lions' Quilt-In

Attended the Lions Club of Quilters Quilt-In at Brown Hill, Ballarat, today. A highlight of the day was a talk by the creators of the Lions Centenary quilt:

 And the chance to get a close look at some of the details:
There is a lot of symbolism in the quilt design, and the workmanship is amazing.  The quilt has been touring around Lions club meetings, and will be going to Chicago in June for the 100th Lions International Convention. Its eventual home is intended to be a museum which is still in the planning stages.

  1. A beautiful quilt, I love the imagery of impossible plants. Will see this one in person at the end of the month when it comes to Waverley Patchworkers.
