Not a lot quilting has been going on in these parts of late so it was nice to have a bit of a quilty fix when I was over West recently. I visited the Salvage/Selvedge exhibition at the wonderful Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery in Fremantle.

83 quilts made by 45 quilters over 15 months.  All made from an array of donated fabrics (from suiting, corduroy, upholstery, vintage, ties & more!) in 3 designs only Рhorizontal, quilt as you go or log cabin. The variety within these boundaries was incredible & the mix of textures were right up my quilty street.

We were encouraged to touch the quilts & flip them over to see their just as wonderful backs. LOVE that.

Photos don’t do them justice but I’m sharing a few shots¬† anyway ;)

All the quilts were to be auctioned off as a fundraising event.
