Marg Sampson-George Exhibition 27th and 28th March 2015

Excitement is growing here at Quilts In The Barn!!
Its only 3 weeks till we open the barn doors on what is shaping up to be an amazing exhibition.
Featuring the quilts of Marg Sampson-George
( an amazing teacher from the Blue Mountains in Sydney) and her students,
there has been many sneak peaks flashing around Instagram
and other social media, as many continue to progress towards finished quilts to display.

The lovely Jean, and Liz, along with Marg are the main organisers behind this exhibition.
These 3 ladies  have stitched their little fingers off over the Christmas break
 to make a stunning raffle quilt, which was hand quilted by Trish Harper,
that one very lucky person will win.
Raffle tickets are selling fast, and they can be found in many quilt shops,
 both here in Victoria and other states.
The list can be found on the back of the flyer.
