Enjoy fabulous photos of the "Making of the Australian Quilt - 1800 -1950" exhibition from the "Every Stitch"  blog. The exhibition is currently at the National Gallery of Victoria and features absolutely stunning antique quilts, including the original "Rajah Quilt."

From the Museum:
Making the Australian Quilt: 1800–1950 is the first major exhibition of its kind to bring together the rich works that constitute Australia’s quilt heritage. Exclusive to Melbourne, the exhibition includes more than eighty works from around the country. Key works such as The Rajah Quilt and examples by renowned makers Mary Jane Hannaford, Marianne Gibson and Amelia Brown are shown alongside a number of recently discovered pieces not exhibited before. They include quilts, coverlets, garments and quilted, patched and pieced works made in Australia or with a significant Australian provenance. The exhibition also features key 19th century English quilts that were brought or sent to Australia, informing and influencing the early quilting practices of local makers.

Loved seeing the amazing quillts which are all held in Victoria. Perhaps one day I will get another opportunity to see them if and when I go to Melbourne. I am hoping it won't be too soon before I get too Melbourne's Quilt Show.
