The theme was Carnival this year and there were little clowns decorating tables everywhere.
In the foyer all the challenge quilts were displayed for the Carnival theme. We were amazed at some of the creative entries. Here is some photos of a few of them. I can't tell you who made them because the voting was anonymous.
Visitors to the show could vote for their favourite and the winner was Naomi Hynes with her exquisite entry.

Ann had made this Crossword quilt pictured above for her daughter's birthday and had gone to a lot of trouble to include names and special meanings for her daughter.

At the end of the quilt show we had to pick the winner of the beautiful raffle quilt designed and quilted by Naomi Hynes of The Elegant Stitch.
The winner was Wendy Cadby who is a Waverley Patchworker's member. We had to drag her out of the Quilt Show Cafe where she was working to tell her that she had won the quilt.
She was absolutely thrilled.
