Young Quilt Show

Last weekend I travelled over to Young, where the Lions Club put together a quilt show in the Town Hall.  I set up a small trading table on the Sunday to hopefully meet a few of the local people and convert them to my style of patchwork.

Below are Roxanne, Cynthia and Aunty June, who came along to have a look at my quilts, I will have to say that it's great to have family connections to come along and make the stand look busy, not to mention the wonderful help they gave me when it came time to pack up. Thanks cous's.

This is Roxanne's quilt, a tribute to her father, it is made from all of his jeans and flannelette shirts, it was very effective, and had a couple of family photos included as well.

A closer look,

This is Cynthia's gorgeous quilt, my photography doesn't do the quilt and the fabric justice.  Made for a special little girl.

This is one that I entered, Secret Garden, designed by Cindy Lammon with a couple of changes.

I just had to take a photo of this quilt, it was my viewer's choice pick, maker and designer unknown,  the centre and colours were stunning.

And, not to brag, I was thrilled to have been voted viewer's choice in conjunction with a second quilt, judges declared it a draw between my version of Breast of Friends and an amazing embroidered quilt.  Thankyou everyone for your votes and coming over to say hello. It was a great day and hopefully everyone will be back again next year for another great show.

Until next time,



  1. Congrats on the Viewers Choice but where's the photo?
    Lovely to see Roxanne's smiling face!

  2. Congratuations!! Your Secret Garden quilt is so pretty. I love the jeans and shirts one too! It must be heavy with all the denim. It sounds like you had a wonderful time.
