A visit to the KV Quilt Guild's annual show yesterday in Quispamsis was inspiring. SO many beautiful quilts, so much work represented in one room!! And we were so very excited and proud to see ribbons hanging on six different quilts from Fredericton, 4 of them by one FQG member! My good friend Sandi Mac cleaned up!! Way to go Sandi girl! Shown here are Sandi's four quilts. The first one is Celtic Sampler which won Best Hand Applique. Wow is all I can say! Look at the perfection of those "celtic knots"...
Next is Blooming Redwork which won first place in the "Small Traditional" category. What a lovely piece of work; many hours went into this one.
Her third ribbon was in the same category- third place in Small Traditional for Geisha Girls, a tablerunner resulting from a Guild workshop last fall taught by
Karen Henry. The class taught how to do the "woven " background.
Sandi's last ribbon, and perhaps the sweetest of all, was Judge's Choice for Dazzling Pineapple. This photo really does not do the piece justice as there is much beading on the pineapple, which does not show well.
Again, Congrats Sandi!!
The other two ribbons which will be coming home to Freddy Beach were won by a former FQG member, Davida S.
Davida won a Judge's Choice ribbon as well, for Friendship. The theme for the show this year was Asian Inspirations, and this quilt suited the theme so well as all the fabrics were Asian prints, and they were beautiful! This photo really does not do it justice. Davida also won Best Machine Applique with Victorian Poppies (below). Well done Davida!
Next time I'll show you more winners and a few other quilts which caught my eye...
