Quilts in the Barn

Another fantastic Quilts in the Barn show was put on a couple of weeks ago. The show celebrated the works of students who had been fortunate enough to learn in classes run by Margaret Sampson George. Now I had no idea who Marg was until I met her in the barn on the last day of the show. I was totally blown away by the skill and detail these quilts displayed. Most of the works involved teeny, tiny stitches and a whole lot of applique. I was allowed to take photos but Marg asked me to only show parts of quilts on line so here are some snap shots of parts of quilts. Hope you enjoy.

There was so much to see. I just kept going round and round the rooms. Lots of work was sewn onto linen. Everything seemed to be patched using paper piecing. The quilts were large, vibrant and detailed. Some must have taken years to complete.
I am sure if you search on line for Quilts in the Barn you will find better and possibly full photos of the quilts.
So while my machine languishes in the fix it shop, I am even doing a bit of hand stitching myself.


  1. That exhibition must have been a feast for the eyes. I wish I could have been there. My friend travelled especially from Sydney to Melbourne to see it.

  2. Wow! Thank you for sharing these. They are incredible! Very inspiring for hand appliqué.

  3. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your view of the show!

  4. I just need to know how to get a website started. I want to make a fan site for a new band. I know that I have to pay for a domain, but I’m confused about how to purchase & build a website. Help please? Thanks in advance! (:. Thanks everyone! (:>
