Another Visit to The Sydney Quilt Show 2019

I was lucky to be able to visit the wonderful QuiltNSW Quilt Show again today.

Magnificent workmanship by Julie Adamson who won Best of Show in Victoria this year. 
Wow, stunning hand appliqué in silks.

And another Best of Show from South Australia by Judith Stacey.  The Caswell Quilt designed by Corliss Searcey of Threadbear.

I thoroughly enjoyed a floor talk by the very clever Catherine Butterworth, winner of this year’s Best of Show.

Catherine had a special exhibit of some of her award winning quilts from previous quilt shows.  Here are some of them.  Wow!

And here are a couple of more lovelies from the Show floor.

Congratulations to the Committee and all the members and sponsors for another fabulous Quilt Show.

Fabulous Appliqué and Piecing by My Students

I have so much beautiful work from my classes that I would like to share with you.

At Post Office Patchwork, Glenbrook, Pauline has made progress on this beautiful central mandala for “Donwell Abbey”.
She has used lots of Di Ford fabric plus others from her stash.

Coralie is working on lovely blocks for “Lambton”.

I love her fabric choice.

Judy is working on the frames for “Longbourne”.

At Lyn’s Fine Needlework, Baulkham Hills, Adrienne has completely finished her stunning “Lambton”.

For a change of pace, Adrienne has gone on to make this fabulous machine pieced “Millefiori”, one of my whack and stack quilt designs.

She has chosen a big, bold William Morris print.  Wow!!!

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.
