Quilts at the Royal Easter Show 2014

Thank you to all the Guild members who supported the Patchwork, Applique and Quilting section at the Easter Show this year. There were more than double the number of entries from last year - over 70 quilts.
Arts and Crafts is in a brand new pavilion this year, just across the road from the Dome where the District Exhibits are displayed, and the quilts are in a central location right beside the Standard of Excellence case.
The prize for the Best Exhibit in Patchwork, Applique and Quilting, which the Quilters’ Guild of NSW supports, went to Robyn Martin.  

Congratulations to the many members who received awards, especially Lauren Roach whose Blue Bird (as seen above) Won 1st Prize for Patchwork, Applique and Quilting : Under 14 Category

Congratulations, too, to Anne Kintominas – 1st prize for Embroidery of Modern or Contemporary Design – and Wailyn Mar – Highly Commended for Sienna Cake/Panforte. And to any other Guild members who entered/won awards in other sections.
