The local quilt show

There was a local quilt show at the Redland's Council Hall a few weeks ago.  The small space was crammed full of quilts on display.  They were packed in so tightly that it was difficult to take photos.  Most quilts were beautifully stitched but copies of other quilts or from purchased kits.  But in amongst these were a couple of original quilts.   These were stand outs.  They were only for display not part of the competition and were made by a local resident.  She had used the birds and flowers in her own garden as inspiration.

Because space was so tight I couldn't get a photo of the full quilt but I did manage some of the panels in the quilt.

The central panel was quite lovely,

and when you looked into it the hand quilting complemented the design.

Each of the surrounding panels would have made lovely small quilts in their own right.

I bet there are lots of other pieces in peoples homes that are just as beautiful but are never shared outside their families.
