Our annual club show and tell event on Saturday was, as usual, a fabulous day for everyone : an inspiring array of quilts, great challenges to look at, a wonderful speaker, and fun shopping. I have lots to share about the day so will devote this post to some of the quilts on display. Fabulous number of challenges entered this year - click on the categories to go to the Rose City Quilters blog posts showing the entries and section winners : First Time, Beginner and Intermediate - Advanced and Professional - Anthing goes - open category but quilt related. Awesome variety of work.
We were also very lucky to have the New Zealand 2011 Hoffman challenge on show - click here for general information about the challenge. This was the fabric they had to use: I took photos of a few on display, without thinking about who had won, but turns out I liked all the winners. Best of show and Viewer's choice was "Ride with Me" by Joanne Mitchell, Geraldine. Best Traditional with a Twist was "A Pot of Fireworks" by Tracey Marshall, Temuka. Best Contemporary was "Masquerade" by Cindy Watkins, Tasman. I also loved "The Gift" by Mary K. Ohara Matheson, DunedinLots of inspiration there, and that was before we got to the speaker and the shopping!
