THE an­nual Dalby show­case of some of the re­gion’s best quilt­ing be­gins its dis­play to­day.

Si­t­u­ated at An­thony’s on Cun­ning­ham St, this year’s dis­play of the Dalby Ap­plique and Quilt­ing Club has pro­duced some of its best works.

The an­nual event has been run­ning for nearly 30 years, co­in­cid­ing with the his­tory of the club.

Pa­tron of the club, Lorna Laverty said the week long event will be rais­ing money for a cause.

“We will be run­ning two raf­fles over the event with some of the pro­ceeds go­ing to mak­ing prod­ucts for pre­ma­ture ba­bies at the Royal Bris­bane Hos­pi­tal,” she said.

“We make cush­ions, lit­tle quilts and bed cov­ers for pre­ma­ture ba­bies.”

The an­nual event has been pop­u­lar since its in­cep­tion.

This years event be­gins to­day at 9am and will run un­til 5pm.

The dis­play will close next Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20.
