Just wanted to share some quilts from the Sydney 2010 quilt show.
My friend was honoured with an invitation from the Quilter's Guild to display her traditional style quilts. It was wonderful to revisit these old friends, having witnessed the evolution of some from idea to completion.
Upon entering the show visitors were presented with two of Gai's quilts. She doesn't believe in small quilts....(had to laugh - this is very very last of 100's of photos I took...note right of screen.)
Hand quilted, hand pieced and all hand appliqued. Her dedication to excellent work has continued to inspire me over the years to improve my own work.
Gorgeous echo quilting.
Inspired by a quilt in the American Museum in Bath. Love the clamshell quilting.
Sigh...more on the show soon.
