I was the interstate judge and the other two were Sandra Lyons and Belinda Betts, both from Sydney. Here is a photo of us at the Prize giving ceremony, we were lucky to have front row seats.

At the end of the judging, each judge is able to choose her Judges Choice and I chose Reflection of Love by Jennifer Horsford because I really liked the quilt and I was disappointed when it didn't get a prize.

Each Judge has a quilt on display and I chose to display my quilt The Bleaching.

I took many more photos and some I haven't put here because my photo did not show it at its best.
I really enjoyed my time in Sydney and would like to thank the President Megan Manwaring and Exhibition Coordinator Sandra Harvey and all the Quilt NSW committee and members for being so kind and welcoming to me.
I stayed with Quilt NSW life member Lynn Hewitt and she took care of my every need and I felt very pampered in Sydney.
