Sue Walters wins prize at Festival of Quilts

Abigail Rose quilt

Sue Walters from Cheltenham pieced this quilt and it was professionally long armed quilted by Sandy Chandler of Launceston before being entered in the Two Person category at the Festival of Quilts 2016 where it won 2nd prize. 

Sue wanted to make a grown up quilt to put away for her grandaughter.  The inspiration for the centre came from an antique quilt she purchased from the Antique Textile Company.  The remainder of the quilt grew organically and is her own design.  There is machine piecing, needle turn applique and English paper piecing.

Sandy Chandler's long arm quilted whole cloth quilt won 1st in the traditional quilt category and was best in show.  Sandy was the speaker at a recent South West Quilters group meeting
