Island Quilts Tasmania 2011 - Two Firsts!

I know this is not a great photo ... but I didn't get to the Island Quilts 2011 Exhibition this year as I was teaching over in Melbourne at Michelle's Sewing Basket.   

I came home to a wonderful email from Fran Williams advising that we had won with her beautiful quilt "Everything but the kitchen sink"

So details are:

First - Traditional Quilts - Two Person
"Everything but the Kitchen Sink" made by Fran Williams - Quilted by Jane Monk

Another win also was

First - Non-Traditional Quilts - Two Person
"Japanese Heads"  made by Corrie Szopko - Quilted by Jane Monk

I don't have a photo of Corrie's lovely quilt.      I am waiting for the information to be posted on the Tasmanian Quilt Guild web site ... soon hopefully.

There is something special about being entrusted to quilt someones beautiful work, and even better when our combined work is acknowledged by such a win at our State level.  Thankyou to everyone who lets me quilt for them.

Congratulations to everyone who entered a quilt ... not every quilt can win, but they are all special and hold meaning to those who make them. 
Happy Quilting for now ... Jane x

Congratulations Jane! I still haven't posted potots for the Zentangle class from last week on my blog. I really enjoyed it. Thanks
