I spent hours last night posting lots of little reports of the quilt show, and then it still did not post in the order I intended, but you can work it out! The Special Visitors title should have come after the Quilt Show Report heading!!
For some reason it is taking a LONG time to post these days, so I shall set this going this morning and it can load while I get on with some work.
These are some of the 150 quilts that were on display. I have mainly picked out those of my customers, so that I do not have to go and ask permission of anyone else. I may have posted these on the blog previously, but they all look different hanging with there binding on and not flat on my bed! And they are in no particular order, and with people photos in between. (You can click on the photos for a closeup look.)
Marie’s disappearing pinwheel quilt, set out in a different way. She made it for her daughter who likes cats and pink. It was quilted all over with cats walking across the quilt.
This is Pat's border quilt, which won second in the Viewers Choice award.
Lyn’s heirloom quilt, made for her son’s partner, with her Grandma’s doilies and tatting. This quilt won 3rd, Viewers Choice.
This is the quilt I made for my son and his partner, which came back for the exhibition. Carly got a sneak peak on Thursday as she was here in town, and said how large it looked hanging up. It was her choice for brown, and now she says she likes my pink and green!
Nana’s Memories by Mignon, which won Viewers Choice. All hand pieced and started in 2008. Each diamond is a different fabric. This was the quilt that I blogged about a couple of months ago, that members of the group helped to finish, so we were all very pleased when it won the award.
Jeannette checking out Jean’s purchase of some preprinted fabric for sashiko stitching.
Marie also purchased some of this fabric, in a different colour, and here she is wasting no time to start it. Marie was selling her hand dyed fabric at the members table.
This is Michelle’s Fractured Circles quilt that I was hoping to get a better photo of when it was hanging. The light still wasn’t that great, but I think you can see if you click on it.
I hope you can notice that I changed the coloured thread to black for the border stitching.
The Embroidery Group had a lovely display as well. This is just a tad out of my comfort zone!
I may as well post this photo, which Michele took. I was being silly, and pretending to do some of Michele’s hand sewing when she walked away, but she snapped me.
Pat’s candlewicked quilt, called Fleur De Lys, made for her daughter Fleur. This quilt won a special award for Viewers Choice.
This is a disappearing Hourglass quilt, made by Pauline in one of my Mystery retreats.
This is quilt Marie made in my Embellished quilts classes. She wasn’t making a quilt, just cushions!
And here are a few closeup photos of my quilt, that I will block soon so that it hangs better.
I shall click Publish and see if it goes. Hope you have enjoyed just some of the quilts at our show.
