The 2015 NOTYQ Exhibition

North of the Yarra Quilters Exhibition
3rd and 4th October, 2015

It’s less than 12 months until our next exhibition! I hope everyone is planning
what they will be entering in the show.

And what’s a NOTY exhibition without a challenge!
Our Challenge is “Something with Bling”.

Use your imagination. It can be a 2D or 3D object with bling.
The entry is to be A5 size (approx 6” x 8½“) or smaller.

Again we have made it easy for you with no fabric, ric rac or anything else for you to use. All
you have to do is add some bling

(can be the same as block solid)

9 of 2.5” wof strips of 3 different print fabrics (27 total)
