First let me apologies for being a bit slack in posting. The last few weeks have been frantic for me, with the Darling Harbour Quilt Show, Michelle Yeo's visit and the Sale in the Shop.
I'm very proud to show you the winner of the
"Quiltsmith - Annette Gero" sponsored "Best Reproduction Inspired by an Antique Quilt" Award.
Southern Stars by Karen Malone from Sydney.
What a beauty, all machine pieced and quilted. (I'm in awe) Not only is this a stunningly graphic quilt, technically it is wonderful. Just check out her points. Karen won $500 for her quilt.
The quilt she used as her inspiration is on the cover of the Lone Star book. See how Karen has used the Starburst block but changed the layout and settings of the quilt. Well done Karen.
