New Quilts for Alberton Beds is an exhibition of modern quilts created by the members of the Pt. Chevalier based Monday Modern Quilt Group. These contemporary quilts will offer a fresh perspective on quiltmaking in the historic setting of Mt Albert's Alberton House, built in 1863.

The group, started in 2012, specialise in making quilts of all sizes of through experimentation with space, colour, revision and improvisation. Examples of their colourful works will be displayed in selected rooms throughout the house. This artistic intervention at Alberton follows on from the Monday Modern Quilter's successful show at Highwic in 2013

On Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th September members will be at the house demonstrating quilting techniques and aspects of design. These free interactive sessions will be held at 2-4pm on both days.

Entry: $10 adult, children free.
Open Wednesday-Sunday
