2011 Fraser Coast show quilts


It has been a long time between blogs, so hope to make up for lost time over the next few weeks. 

For those that followed the creation of the double wedding ring quilt, I entered it in the Fraser Coast show after deciding at the last minute that it needed rhinestones….lots of them.  It had been safely stashed in a bag in the bottom of the wardrobe for 3 months, and I took it out to check for loose threads a week before the show, only to decide that the white trapunto was a bit lost on the white background.  The rhinestones definitely helped define the trapunto feather designs, and after a hard slog of 26 hours spread over 5 nights, burned fingers and about 4500 rhinestones, the quilt was finally ready.

I will need to edit the pictures  of the other of each class before I load them, so stay tuned for those, although I have to warn you I am the worlds worst photographer.

My DWR got 1st place in it’s class and reserve champion to an art quilt entry that was spectacular, see below.
