Exhibition Exhibition Exhibition!!!

What a busy week it turned out to be!  Guildford Quilters had their exhibition at Clandon House for the week.

As a member I was on duty a fair bit but decided that on the Tuesday I would go as a visitor with the rest of the Tuesday Girls!!
Unfortunately Caroline could not join us, although as it turned out she was there with her father-in-law.  We missed each other by about 5 minutes.

I put two quilts into the exhibition. This one is a block of the month from Green Mountain at Staines with Paula Doyle, back in about 2007!  The fabrics were provided for the blocks.  Each completed one to be shown, in person, to Paula before we were given the next!
Chris also made this colour way, but with different sashing & borders. Alison also made the quilt using brighter colours.  They all look very different.

This is the "Garden Quilt" which was first prize in the raffle.  It was made by most of the members contributing a block.  We all took part & helped hand quilt it.

This quilt was the second prize, again made by the group & long arm quilted by Isabel Hall.
Unfortunately none of us won either one - we can never have too many quilts!!

This was my other entry, entitled "Spring Awakening".  We had a workshop back in January, where the idea for the pattern was given.  The challenge was to use a piece of green fabric which we were all given.  The title guide was Spring 2012. This is certainly going to bring back memories of the 2012 Exhibition!!

An exhausting but fulfilling week.  Am already looking at projects for the next one!!
