Tuesday Treats: More from the Sydney Quilt Show

I did promise to tell you more about the Sydney Quilt Show so here we go ….

Chris Jurd has given me permission to add some photos of her quilt here.

Chris is a wonderful quilt maker.  She teaches in many of the shops around New South Wales and I noticed quite a few other quilts hanging in the exhibition that had Chris’s class, or name, listed as the makers inspiration. It is well worth a visit to Chris’s blog to see more of her work.

She is very fond of using Cotton Mako’ 50 for her piecing and quilting, and this fine thread is ideal for the small piecing, and sharp points, that she has created in this quilt.

The labels added to quilts at exhibitions are always interesting

I always like to take a photo of the quilt entry label, as it not only works a reminder for me as to the name of the maker of the quilt but, as can be seen here, it usually contains an interesting “story” about the quilt.

Here is the link to NSW Guild website just in case you haven’t already seen all the winning quilts

PS:  Don’t forget to come back on Friday to find out the results of Our Winter Solstice Competition. The winners have been notified, and their prizes are already in the mail but, before I post the results, I want to collate some stats on colour preferences from all the comments.
