As well as the display of all the members quilts we had a large display of the work from the Waverley Art Quilters.

The large cafe was very popular and we had the Birds of a Feather challenge on display on one of the walls. The display was so large I couldn't get them all in a photo.
Marie Hart is in her 90's and she had a quilt on display. She had made the quilt a few years ago and her friend recently quilted it in time for the show.

My friend Eileen Campbell came to visit and I managed to get a photo of her in front of her quilt. It was called A Parliament of Owls which was very fitting seeing as we had a bird themed challenge and plenty of birds decorating the building.

Jenny Mulligan made a quilt using the doilies she had collected on her travels around the world.

She wrote where she had bought the doilies on the quilt.
I loved the quilt by Lyn Nethercott, there was something about it that appealed to me even though I am not usually drawn to such a traditional quilt.

Val Grandin had entered a Christmas embroidered quilt and it was beautifully sewn.

Here is a close up photo of one of the blocks.

My friend Linda Crouch entered 2 quilts that were very different. I love magpies so I was drawn to her small quilt featuring them.

Linda also entered an amazing miniature machine quilted quilt called Feathers and Pearls.

So the quilt show is over now and we will do it all again in 2 years time.
I have saved the best news to last! My quilt A Time for all Seasons won Viewer's Choice!!
It was such an unexpected thrill because there were so many beautiful quilts on display.
Here is a photo of the entire quilt if you haven't seen it before.
