Local quilter takes 1st place

This quilt won first prize at the NSW Quilt Show held in the Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre in June. The quilt, named ‘Lucy Boston Goes to Town’, was placed first in the ‘Professional quilt that is pieced by the maker and quilted by another person’.

Over 4,000 pieces were hand sewn over papers using 250 different fabrics. Helen Granleese stitches with the Maclean Patchwork and Quilting Group since moving back to the Clarence Valley from Temora NSW.

Congratulations to Helen, a very talented quilter. Helen also constructed the quilt on display in the Lower Clarence Arts and Crafts at Ferry Park which is to be raffled to raise funds for the Lower Clarence Hospital Auxiliary.

Tickets at $2 are available at Ferry Park. MPQ meets each Tuesday at 9am in the Uniting Church Hall in Maclean.
