I can’t believe it’s been nearly fortnight we went to Quilt & stitch village in Uttoxeter . It was smaller show but still full of exquisite work. I really liked their embroidery section, Especially winner of the 3D embroidery by Julie Rowe.
This quilt was made by Michael Fitchet, which was so good to see a man and he won second prize for Wall hanging. It has started as a sketch of Ben Nevis and turned into lovely piece.
One just must admire the labour of love and the time spend on this gorgeous rainbow piece.
First prize in modern category – all hand quilted with buttons , I love the bright colours of this quilt.
And a third prize in Modern category came home with us! It was so nice to see those bright colours on the black background and it’s yellow Rossette goes with it so well!
Moonlit garden finally has been appreciated and admired not only in our shop but by all the visitors at the show and brought home first prize in Inovative category.
Two quilts and two prizes … I was walking on air for quite a few days after that. It is such a lovely feeling … I’m very grateful.
And of course the overall winner and Bed quilt category winner – Capuccino by Lynda Jackson. I’m sorry it’s not the best picture, but the flowers are all embroidered on a computerised sewing machine. The quilting is just amazing!
There was of course so much more, but these were my favourite ones.
