SWMQG Showcase 2018

SWMQG Showcase 2018

I’m a member of the South West Modern Quilt Guild, and we are holding our first exhibition this month – exciting!  I thought I’d share a few pictures from the hanging day on Monday.

I was very much looking forward to seeing the blocks from our Rainbow Challenge.   This was Charlie’s idea, and we were all thrilled to see her idea of a ‘quilt’ made from the mini quilts come to life.

I spent most of the day climbing up and down ladders – you can see my Sunflower cushion in the centre here –

This is Mary Emmens‘ mini version of her Caernarfon quilt.  It’s paper pieced, so a completely different construction to the full size version which I made at the beginning of the year.

And I had to share this corner.  Kerry’s mini quilts are on the left, my Highland Cow, and Fiona’s Hare.  Sarah’s Trellis Blues quilt is on the right.

So that’s a very personal view of a small part of the exhibition.  Apologies to everyone I haven’t included here – all the quilts are amazing!  The exhibition is taking place at CICCIC in Taunton until 27 October.
