More Quilts from Island Quilts, Hobart, Tasmania

Continuing with more quilts from the Island Quilts display at the Craft & Quilt Fair late June held in Hobart, Tasmania.
Two quilts captured my eye then I discovered they were both made by the same quilter.  Joanie Sturzaker entered "The Quilter Palette" in the Traditional Small Amateur which was her version of a design by Annie Smith and although I'm not a fan of sampler quilts, this won my heart. 
The colours?  Being on point? Such a striking quilt.

Joanie's "Go Be Dazzled" won an Amateur Encouragement Award. Aren't the colours superb?

Note the detail of the quilting surrounding each section.  No wonder Joanie won an award.

Entered in Non-Traditional Large Amateur section and is Joanie's version of a design by Sarah Vedeler.

Brenda Shaw's "Vinnie's Quilt" is her version of a Jane Hardy Miller design from "French Braid Transformation". It won a Judges' Commendation and was entered in the Non-Traditional Large Amateur section.

For some reason it appealed to me; could it be bordering on the new Modern Quilt trend?

First Prize of the Non-Traditional Small Quilts by Amateurs was won by Karen Walker for her "Just Hanging Around".

Another quilt that took my fancy because of the outstanding colours and also because it related to a lesson within our Curve Master Online Course.  

Virginia Koster made "Circular Circus" and at first I thought it was regular Drunkard's Path blocks, but then I noted they were those shapes within Half-Square Triangles.   Note the close-up and the echo-quilting.

I hope you've enjoyed viewing these like I did.
