The show was at Glebe Island again this year and what a great venue. So light-filled and easy to get to with public transport - free bus or ferry.
What a great exhibition this year! Over 400 quilts to see and over 100 in the Red and White category. Amazing work from all our talented members.
One of my entries this year was Go Girl, quilted by Leanne of Mt Vincent Quilts. And what a fab job she did!
The quilting was designed around the centre oval fabric - geisha playing the guitar, with snakes and skulls all around. Quite subtle really!
Full pic below. Tho I didn't win an award it looks great hanging among all the others. It took a bit of tweaking to square it up beforehand. I washed then blocked and it worked perfectly.
There were a few quilts made by students of mine and by good friends...
Becca's NYB from a class in Dorrigo
Rachaeldaisy's entry in the Red and White was given a Judges Commendation
Pam's Irish Chain - pity you can't see the quilting
One of Leanne's entries - my favourite. Quilting was very interesting
Leonie's Emperors Wheel with the centre below
Ancient Dahlia - so sorry I can't remember the maker's name
And our Springwood Quilt Show raffle quilt - no prize but looked very pretty .
All the show winners are on the Guild's website here along with the Red and White winners.
Better start thinking about next year's entries!
