More Showcase Photos

Well the Victorian Quilters Showcase is over for another year. Everyone agreed that the quilts were of a very high standard this year and there was a quilt for all tastes. There were traditional pieced, applique, art and even a display of the current trend of modern quilts.

The profile a quilter this year was Desley Maisano. Desley is a long arm machine quilter and her business is called Addicted to Quilts. She does the most amazing machine quilting and it was lovely to see so many of her quilts all hanging together at the show.
Here is a photo of Desley in front of her Best of Show quilt from 2011.

Here is a close up detail of some of Desley's beautiful quilting.

Desley is a professional quilter and you may contact her if you would like her to quilt your quilt.

This year it was the Victorian Quilters 20th birthday and to celebrate they had a challenge to make a one metre square quilt inspired by a plate. There were 17 lovely quilts and the winning entry was done by Ramona Resurreccion.

Isn't it beautiful? The quilts are going to on display around Australia at the various Guild Shows so you will be able to see them again.

Sue DeVanny won 1st in Art Quilts for her quilt named Time.

Here is Pamela Brockwell in front of her beautiful quilt that won Best of Show.

Pamela got permission from Sharon Schamber to make up her winning quilt pattern and enter it into the show.
Here are a couple of detail shots for you to see the beautiful machine applique and domestic machine quilting.

Pamela has certainly mastered the use of her machine, it was a stunning quilt.

I took a lot of photos of the quilts but quilt shows are becoming very strict with the guidelines of publishing photos and so I have shown you some quilt photos of people that I know. This year for the first time they were selling CD's of all the quilts for $10. I don't know if the cd will be available after the show or not.

It was a very inspiring show and one of my favourite parts of attending the show is being able to catch up with the many quilting friends I have made over the years.

Bye for now,
