For the 3rd year in a row, someone from our TVCT group won the Quilts Creation section!
in 2014 it was Kate Crossley with her working quilted Grandfather clock.
in 2015 it was Mavis Walker with her chess set of quilted dolls.
and in 2016 it is Jane Bonney with her cope inspired by the finding of the bones of Richard III.
But now we will have a gap in our exhibition at Bristol in November... But for good reason as it will travel with other winners to Ally Pally, Harrogate and Dublin. Another member Sandra Newton won the miniatures, but I couldn't get close enough to get a photo! You can see a photo of her piece and of all the winners on the Festival of Quilts site.
Kate Crossley got a 3rd place in the Quilts Creations, too. I didn't have enough time this year to see much other work and if it was our group or not.
I also introduced Jane to Wendy Gardiner who runs the fashion show, suggesting she enter the cope. So that was another chance for people to see her work!
