The Sydney show is very big with plenty of quilts on display and plenty of shops to tempt you to spend your money.
In honour of their 30th birthday the guild invited 30 well known, award winning quilters to participate in two "one-off" Master Quilter Categories. One category was for the Traditional quilts and the other category was for the Contemporary or Art Quilts. I was honoured to be asked to participate.
I entered my quilt Holiday Waltz and was so thrilled to receive 2nd prize.

On one of my white glove duties I was in charge of minding the Best of Show quilt and I got to study this wonderful quilt in detail.

By the way, I also won another prize in the show. My quilt Naturally Crazy won 4th in Mixed Techniques.

I had a wonderful time at the show and met up with many friends and made some new friends as well.
Bye for now,
