Canberra success

I was about to add a blog post last weekend to do some bragging, when the computer decided it did not want to turn on at all!!  So a couple of mad dashes to town to get it fixed and purchase a new monitor and I am back in action. 

So, here is the thing.  Below is a photo of a smiling me, standing next to my Blackgate Interchange quilt, which as you can see has blue ribbon pinned to it.  It got first prize in the category of commercially quilted at the Canberra Quilt Show, quilting done by Sarah Lennon who always does a great job with any size or style of quilt. 

Ribbons to prove it was real and not just a prank call, I was so thrilled as there were so many beautiful quilts, I don't know how the judges decide a winner. 

To put another feather in the cap, the judges awarded a special prize for Retaining the Tradition.  I couldn't believe it - certainly made my week!

Just in case you didn't get a good look at it before, here is another view.  I have released a pattern for it, if you are interested just send me a comment or email at and I can give you the details.

Now for a couple of class pics from the other week, I think Helen has been bitten by the hexagon bug, she made this lovely tablerunner from the 3/4" size - very nice.

This is Barb's gorgeous Golly quilt, a little time in the making but well worth it.

And Kaye's version of my Mulberries of Amaroo pattern in blues and purples, my photo does not do it justice, it turned out very well.   

I have more excitement coming up this weekend, as Chris Jurd is coming to town to do a class on the Lots of Dots quilt that she got first prize in Sydney with last year.  Hopefully I will have lots of show and tell next week for you, until then stay well and warm, Janelle.
