What a wonderful result. The three judges took well over and hour and a half to deliberate the entries. They were impressed with the overall very good standard; beautiful neat work; diverse styles and techniques; creativity; bead work and hand stitching. The judges themselves even added another award - an ‘Encouragement Award’.
The ‘First Place’ went to Maureen Devlin, for her ‘Spring Time Beauty’.
The judges remarks included ‘colour match harmonic; pleasing to look at, and workmanship well done.’
The ‘Second Place’ went to Robyn Roberts for her ‘Deep Space’.
The judges remarks included ‘colour well matched; technique brilliant, and beautiful composition.’
‘Highly Commended’ went to Robina Wickerson for her ‘Alpine Spring’.
The judges remarks included ‘colour is good; workmanship is excellent; good use of red, and quilting is very good.’
‘Highly Commended’ also went to Maria Byrne for her ‘Robelsa’.
The judges remarks included ‘colour match is good, interesting composition, and good use of technique.’
The judges were so impressed, they wanted another award on the spot! So thanks to Georgie, a prize was quickly added.
An ‘Encouragement Award’ went to Jane Noyes for her ‘ Fish and Chips’.
Jane’s use of realia on her quilt caught a lot of attention, I wonder where she found the shells!
Congratulations and Well Done Ladies! All the quilts will be on display at our Christmas Meetings, so if you were not able to see the exhibition, catch up at a meeting.
Look out for more photos over the next few weeks. This is just a taste …
