Quilt Show Award Winners

The Waverley Quilt Show is an exhibition of members work. Each member is encouraged to exhibit their recent work. Given that it has been four years since our last show the number and size of quilts was very impressive. It was not possible to hang all entries given space constraints, but every member who submitted work was able to see it hanging in all its glory.

Choosing quilts that stood out from the others was difficult.

The June Lyons Award is selected by the Quilt Show Committee and is the work of one person. This year the award went to Endemism by Karen McGregor, both original and thought provoking.

President’s Choice is named in honour of Dawn Burrows our founding President. This time it was selected by Heather our immediate Past President and current Vice President. Jan Smart’s needle turn appliqué version of the Caswell Quilt that was quilted by another member, Naomi Hynes was a popular choice.

The viewing public voted for Linda Crouch’s amazing Fibonacci Fandango as show favourite.

The Marie Hart Award which goes to a quilter who has been quilting for less than five years was selected by Marie’s dear friend Ronnie, who chose Campagnia by Heather Stephens because she knew Marie would have loved it.
