Best in Show

The Official Opening on our quilt show on Friday evening was quite an occasion. We mixed and mingled over wine and cheese. Important people made speeches, the awards were given out, and the quilt show was officially opened. Only then were we allowed to enter the gallery and finally see all the quilts hung on the wall. What a beautiful riot of colour they made, as we all crowded around to see who had made what, and check out those winning quilts. “Best in Show” went to Jenny, (no, not me) whose prizewinning quilt was composed of the New York Beauty block in reds, greys and blacks, with an intricate pieced inner border. I met Jenny some years ago when we took part in a Christmas Stocking swap together. She is thrilled with her win, and it is richly deserved, great work, Jenny!

Our quilts are hung in Expressions Gallery, Upper Hutt, and the exhibition will last for 4 weeks. I plan to make several trips back to the gallery and will take more photos in daylight conditions to show on the blog. So…… watch this space.
