Welcome to Essendon QuiltersSharing our love of quilting
We meet regularly to explore the art and craft of quilting.
Visitors and new members are most welcome at our monthly meetings.
Our site has two levels:
PUBLIC - available for everyone
MEMBERS ONLY - available when you join our group (login required)
Public Health Response:
All Quilters, that are part of the Victorian Stitching fraternity, are to be congratulated for hanging in with the many public health restrictions. Some of our special activities cancelled and/or deferred include the Quilt Show, workshops, Paint Chip Challenge, and the Annual Retreat.
We have also sought and received permission to defer our Annual General Meeting. In the same vein, the membership subscription will not be due until 2021.
Melbourne is on track with the Government’s Roadmap out of restrictions. When we can recommence we are insured and have an active membership of Vic Quilters to mid-2021.
We look forward to being able to stitch together again as soon as the Government says it’s safe to do so.

Another scrappy nine-patch for QFO ... Robyn R Amazing how an 'ugly' didn't know what to do with it stripe fabric, is just the right one to frame these nine-patch blocks! Used three different rulers for quilting - a Westalee ruler, a DMQuilting ruler, and an...
This week's finish ... Denise S Hi everyone, I was being very virtuous and sorting scraps and I decided to sew this piece and that piece together. I then put it with the source of the scraps, 15 minutes of play, which was in ‘the might use one-day’ box....
Mug Rugs ... Cindy C Hi Ladies, it's been a busy week. Among other things, I made 2 mug rugs from my fussy cut pentagons. Had a massive clean up in the sewing room and found a number of things that have been LOST for some time. Michael and I played lawn bowls...
