The Up to 12 Years of Age JUNIOR ENTRANT Section
was won by ELLA KIDD for her quilt
LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE
Ella actually made this delightful quilt during the Christmas School Holidays when she was 9 years old. She said, "the background is coloured like a rainbow because I love rainbows and I thought it would look nice with the black flower and banners".
Hey, NINE YEARS OLD! Well done Ella, we are all proud of you.
First Prize in the Senior Entrant Up to 18 Years of Age Section was awarded to
CALAIS McDERMOTT for her quilt M5B.
Calais said, "A patchwork of different fictional characters. The quilt brings together their unique personalities and displays them in detail. This colourful quilt has strong sentimental value to the creator as well as bringing a fresh subject matter to the show".
The BERNINA EXCELLENCE AWARD for Senior Student was awarded to
KATE MATTHEWS for her quilt FLY.
Oh how I love Kate's description............YEAH for all the Grandma's teaching the next generation!
Kate said "Machine pieced quilt of my own design. Free motion quilting. Supervised by Grandma. Machine Applique".
Thank you GRANDMA!
These are the only ones in the Junior Sections that I photographed,
but isn't the quilting future in good hands?
More as soon as possible because I am now in Adelaide for their Craft & Quilt Fair. I hope you visit if you live nearby.
We are on Stand A07 and also at the front entrance on the
Nifty Notions stand for Into Craft. See you at the SHOW.
