MORE than 100 quilts will adorn the walls of beautiful St Paul's Church this week for its annual Quilt and Craft Display.

Organiser Verna Hunt said there would be a wide variety of antiques, old music, vintage sewing machines, tatting and lace making, spinning and weaving on display.

"The church looks amazing when the quilts are up - and people don't realise until they come and go 'wow'," Mrs Hunt said.

Competitors who vied for champion status in the 2012 Queensland Quilters Challenge will showcase their entries, including work by four Ipswich children.

The gala affair includes craft stalls each day, with members of the All Saints Anglican Church craft group showcasing their talents too. On Saturday eight market stalls will be set up with jewellery, antiques and crafts for sale, as well as a World Vision information stall.

First prize in the raffle is a beautiful quilt made out of oriental fabric. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

The event runs on Saturday from 9am until 3pm, and Sunday from noon until 3pm.

St Paul's is at 124 Brisbane St, Ipswich.

Phone 3288 8925 or 0409 062 485.
