My Visit to The Sydney Quilt Show - Traditional Quilts

Whilst I enjoy the modern quilt movement, my true love is traditional quilting.

Here is a selection of some of the stunning traditional quilts I saw this year at The Show.

Fabulous quarter inch hexagons, all 27,000 of them, by Pauline Yianakis.

A magnificent Lucy Boston by Helen Granleese.

Lovely piecing by Margaret Cormack.


This lovely quilt by Rhonda Pearce.

Another beauty by Helen Granleese.

This was so gorgeous in traditional folk art style by Shelly Kelly and Sharon Geddes.

This stunning quilt by Narelle Birchall was based on an antique quilt similar to the quilt that inspired my Pemberley.

Finally, here am I with my “Donwell Abbey”.  Thank you Helen Hayes for the magnificent quilting.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my visit to the QuiltNSW Show for 2019.

My Visit to the Sydney Quilt Show 2019 - Modern Quilts

I always have a great day at the fabulous quilt show put on by our State Guild, QuiltNSW.  This year was no exception.

As you enter the Show area, you see a fabulous hoop display of all different techniques made by Guild members.

Here is my hoop, a foundation pieced Star with hand quilting.

I had the pleasure to spend the day with Katy Law of Nutmeg Quilting.
Here she is with a quilt she quilted for Michelle Marvig called “Stashbusting Garden”. Both gorgeous.

Amazing appliqué by Merelyn Pearce.  (Quilt labels are shown after each quilt).

I always love Sarah Fielke’s playful quilts, and how true!

This was stunning by Jane Rundle.

Always love Wendy Williams.  So much fun.

This was beautiful by Narelle Birchall.

And of course, the Best of Show by Catherine Butterworth.  Wow!
