Suitcase Collection
 
 

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.

 

We 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.
