Sydney's Quilt Show for 2011 is currently exhibiting more than 400 quilts. Congratulations should go to all who entered their work, for we all know how much effort is involved in producing a quilt. Even more goes into a quilt that is entered into a judged show.
A few of the quilts that caught my eye are below:
"Diagonal Madness" by Terry and Jennifer Minchinton of South Australia;
"On the Amstel River" by Denise Griffiths of Shellharbour;
"Lots of Dots - a Circle Sampler" by Chris Jurd from Blaxland.
With such a high standard, it couldn't have been easy to judge this show and I think the judges got it right generally. To see all the prize winners click here and make sure you check out the other 4 categories by clicking on the red bars below the banner. I think it was a great show.
All the visual stimulation encouraged me enormously. Particularly
They are plates of sweet and savoury food knitted by the "Knitters Guild of NSW" who also had a stall at the show. I came home with enough wool to knit a jumper (translation - sweater) and cardigan. Seems like I may have gone over to the dark side.
