The spring 2016 challenge proposed by Riley Blake Designs
The spring 2016 challenge proposed by Riley Blake Designs called for the very graphic Sashing Stash fabric line, just recently released and signed by Eleanor Dugan.
The rules stipulated a quilted piece, in which this fabric had to be present in black and white; in addition, Riley Blake solids could be used. As with previous challenges, this one was open to members of the Modern Quilt Guild, which carried out most of the promotion, but all other quilters could enter.
On the Modern Quilt Guild site, a very lively video gave a few ideas for inspiration; be sure to take a look at the site as it is very well done!
The Sydney Craft & Quilts Fair that took place last June 22-26
The Sydney Craft & Quilts Fair that took place last June 22-26 was held for the last time on Glebe Island before it returns to terra firma in 2017 in the brand new Convention Centre, nearing completion in the precinct of Darling Harbour.
The Quilters’ Guild of New South Wales Inc. (NSW) is in charge of running the show, as it is every year, displaying more than 400 quilts made by its members. Ranging from traditional to pictorial, and including Modern Quilts, from the largest to the smallest, we were once again charmed by the creativity and abundant colour in these quilts.
Young artist Rachaeldaisy received several awards, including Best of Show and the 1st prize in the Mixed Techniques category for her quilt Whizz Bang.
Congratulations to our friend Cécile Franconie: she was the guest of honor of the Sydney Quilt show.
She came from France especially for this event and achieved great success with her wonderful ribbon embroidery work.
