Canberra Craft and Quilt Show

The Canberra craft and quilt show was on last week and on the weekend and there were lots of stalls and quilts to view. I put two of my favourite quilts in the show this year and won a second place in the Professionally quilted quilt category. How exciting is that! This is my "Journey of a quilter" quilt which is a design by Leanne Beasley and was beautifully quilted by Robyn of Plain and Fancy.
Here I am with my first ever ribbon. I am so lacking in sporting ability that I didn't even get any ribbons in Primary school!
I also put in my other favourite, Your home or mine, which is a design by Lynette Anderson.
There were lots of inspiring quilts. I loved this penny rug one.
Check out the lovely old buttons and the great fabrics.
This was another gorgeous quilt. Beautiful applique and quilting.

That is great! Congratulations, Sylvia! It is such a buzz to win a ribbon or any award in a show where there are so many beautiful handmade crafts to compete. I'm always surprised when my projects get a mention!
