Well, it's been some week, a new website and 4 Rosettes for two entries...yes 'four!'








The Victorian Lady....1st for Machine Quilting






Flourish won

1st Wholecloth
1st Longarm Quilting
3rd Small Wallhanging....

All ribbons are golden yellow with a central disk with details....

I can hardly believe I won both of the machine awards...I am thrilled!



A Wealth of Talent!

Of couse there were lots of wonderful quilts, here are just a few of my favourites....




This was the Champion Quilt...wonderful choice of fabrics with fantastic shading and thread painting, I went back to look at this a few times, so much detail, it just draws you in! !





I know I'm a longarm machine quilter but I really appreciate beautiful workmanship of any kind, the colours of this quilt are wonderful, very precise piecing and fabulous hand quilting.




This applique quilt is wonderful, again amazing colour choices, beautiful!

Another beautiful quilt with many three dimentional elements and machine quilted motifs won 1st Bed Quilt!

  12. Have to say that two of your quilts were among my favourites (Victorian Lady and Flourish). Congratulations on the rosettes - very well deserved indeed! Like you, I really liked the two Baltimores, and even took the same close up of the Autumn Hedgerow as you. My photos are on my Flickr page if you'd like a look. http://www.flickr.com/photos/60431475@N02/sets/72157627616874473/
