This year was no exception, with lots of fabulous quilts. The following are photos of some that caught my eye:
The first one was made by my lovely friend, Deborah Louie. Called "Last Night's Leftovers", it won 1st prize in the New Traditions from Old Favourites Category. The quilting, as usual, was awesome, especially on that black border!
Here is Michelle Marvig with her "1850s Revisited" which won 2nd prize in the Commercially Machine Quilted Category. Quilted by Michele Turner... Congratulations!
Here is a stunning quilt by Catherine Butterworth, called "Sisterhood". Made of the Seven Sisters block, every diamond in the stars was "fussy cut" from a different fabric and each hexagon block was a different colour. As if that was not enough, Catherine appliqued 510 circles in the sashings. Amazing!
This quilt was called "Big Blue" by Joanne Barraclough. It won a 1st place ribbon in the Traditional (Machine Quilted) Amateur Category. I thought it was really beautiful.
Of course hexagons are always among my favourites. This one was called "First Daughter's Quilt" by Deborah Laurie. It was inspired by an antique quilt featured in the book "Quilts of Virginia 1607 - 1899" (page 50). They are superb!
This quilt is by Rhonda Pearce of Post Office Patchwork. I always love her quilts using reproduction fabrics. This one is called "Civil War Journey". Love the applique and the churn dash block is one of my favourites too!
