Fairholme Quilt Show 2010
I thought you would like to see some of the quilts from the show. This quilt features appliqued Australian wildflowers. The big red blooms are waratah - the state flower of NSW.
This quilt started with a printed panel which was then cut up and embellished with lots of enbroidery/quilting.
Tiny half inch hexagons appliqued. I think this is a design from Australian Patchwork & Quilting. I really liked the diamond pieced border.
Of all the quilts I saw, this is the one I most wanted to make. A simple design really but beautiful fabrics. I think this pattern is made with a layer cake and maybe a jelly roll.
This was one of two quilts in the same design. The other quilt had the colours reversed - blues on yellow. Foundation pieced and quite a dramatic design. Every point perfect!
Another pretty quilt featuring hexagons. I think this is also a design published in Australian Patchwork & Quilting.
This classic design was rendered in modern fabrics and looked much better than my photo. I really liked this quilt and would like to make it.
This is a such a simple design but the fabric combination/colour makes it something special.
I think this is the New Your Beauty pattern, rendered on this occasion in Japanese prints. It's a stunning design that seems to work no matter what style of fabric you use.
Another example of how a simple design is transformed by the judicious choice of fabrics and placement of colour.
So, congratulations to the Fairholme Quilters for a fantastic show. Visit their blog if you would like to see more.
