Queensland Quilt Show

That’s the show over for another year! It was a fabulous show with many wonderful quilts executed exquisitely and beautifully – great to see an interesting collection of modern quilts there, my latest enthuse! (more in another blog) I managed to take out the 2nd prize for Professional – Mixed techniques with this quilt, so you can imagine that was an exciting day!

We both went back to the Show yesterday to see all the quilts again – and the ones that we had not had time to see on our first visit. Such a good show, congratulations to all the wonderful hard working Committee and helpers who made it possible! Many many thanks, Ladies. You can see all the winning quilts here: Queensland Quilt Show.

Also a huge thank you to the sponsors of my prizes: Wabi Sabi Designs Find their website here, and Schoolhouse QuIlters here is their facebook page.

RATG at the QQS

Had lots of fun at the QQS with my friends Brenda and Donna on Sunday and even spent some money! Our display (by Reddy Arts Textile Group) looked great in spite of one of the quilts having been stolen on Wednesday.
