If you love patchwork quilts you must visit the home of Beenleigh Quilters in the Beenleigh Showgrounds this weekend.

Colourful quilts.

The variety and quality of the quilts on show has to be seen to be believed. Such talent! Some are grouped into themes - flower garden and recycled ties.

Row upon row of beautiful quilts.

Each quilt has an explanation of who it was made for - The Man From Snowy River quilt for a man who loves the country; The movie star quilt for the Marilyn and Audrey fan; The pink doona cover for a granddaughter moving out her cot.

You will be asked to choose a favourite and vote for it. Good luck with that. They are all gorgeous.
