The awards for the Victorian Quilters Showcase were announced via Zoom this morning. After three date changes from July this year and many emails, meetings and phone calls we had a virtual show instead of an in-person show. I was lucky enough to win four prizes.
I won Highly Commended in Pictorial and Excellence in Embroidery and Embellishment for The Great Barrier Reef.

This quilt was a little different to my other Coral Reef quilts, because I used all my own hand-dyed and hand painted fabrics, lots of machine thread-painting too.
Here are some detail photos.
I also won two prizes for my Connections quilt. I received first place in Contemporary/Innovative quilts and Best use of Colour.
The quilts were of a particularly high standard this year, so I was absolutely thrilled to receive some prizes. All the quilts and the prize winners will be up on the Victorian Quilters Website in the next couple of days.
Hopefully, we will be back to an in-person show next year, but there are no guarantees!
I am also relieved because I was contacted to say that I was a close contact with Covid and I had to have a Covid test yesterday, today I received a negative result, such a relief! I can relax now.
Bye for now,
