Its taken me a while to get organised enough to write this post. I had a great time in Sydney at Quilt NSW, made even more special by winning 1st Place in my category – Professional Traditional. Special thanks to Expertise Events for my great prize!
It was a wonderful show, with so much variety to choose from with the merchants. The quilt exhibition was fantastic with over 390 quilts on display, and 90 awards given.
There were also 12 different Guild exhibitors ranging from Knitters, Doll collectors, Lace makers, Decoupage, Calligraphers, Handweavers & Spinners etc.
Best of Show
Statement: My exploration of folded point blocks such as Pine Burr, Somerset Star,Pointed Star and an old Chinese folk quilt have resulted in a sampler that is a whizz bang explosion of colour, form and fun!
Below are a few of the lovely quilts that caught my eye. Unfortunately I didn’t get the names of all the quilters.
A Hoop Display
For the first time ever, a display of Quilt Hoops showcasing a diverse array of Quilt styles. The hoops were hanging from nylon strings, and waved and turned in the breeze. They were double sided. They certainly drew the crowds.
And last but not least My Nearly Insane Journey won 1st place in the Professional Traditional class.
