QGI National Exhibition 2015

Quilts are invited for the 2015 QGI National Exhibition opening Saturday May 30, 2015 at 14:30.

Quilts on Display

Education Officer Moya says:

"Hi Everybody,
Hope all is well with you and that you enjoyed our retreat in March.
You may remember us talking about having a National Exhibition this June, so now I am on the hunt for quilts.
Small and large quilts welcome. It would be nice if it could be a quilt that was inspired by one of the classes held at any of the retreats we have had over the years.

I need to have the quilts by Wednesday 27th May.
The exhibition will open on Saturday 30th May at 2.30pm and run until 10th June.
The venue is The Courtyard, Midleton, Co. Cork.

The quilts can be sent directly to the Courtyard, 8 Main Street, Midleton, Co. Cork or can be dropped off to the following people/venues:

Pauline Openneer pcquilt *at*  
Yvonne Mckee at Quilters' Quest, Belfast  yvonne.mckee *at* 
Jane Winters  jane.winters1 *at*
Moya Geraghty  patchworkplus*at*

Please fill out the form at this link and include it with your quilt.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
