We wanted to mark the year
2000 in a special way.
Because our members work on such a wide variety of
projects both traditional and modern, it was decided that a
suitcase collection of small quilts would be both an efficient
and creative way of doing this.
researched traditional methods and observed what contemporary
quilters are achieving and completed 12 different quilts
which demonstrate both the traditional and modern aspects of
this craft. Each
quilt is complete in its own right and displays one or more
techniques. It is
easily transported to different venues and so is an ideal tool
for educational and social
exhibitions. The majority of our members
have designed and worked on the quilts and the collection has
been entirely funded by the group. The collection
was on display at the 2011 Loch Lomond Quilt Show. Click on each quilt for more information.
