Scottish Quilt Championships 2015

Last weekend was the Scottish Quilt Championships in Edinburgh.  this is my local show and I always enter to support it.
This year I was blown away to have won all this....

Two first place ribbons, two Judges Merits and Overall Runner -Up.  Wow I could hardly believe it!
This is the goodie basket that the runner- up receives.

 Fairyfrost feathers which was awarded 1st in miniature/doll category and runner up.
 1st place in small wall hanging for my Hummingbirds.  Very happy to have won this. A lot of hours of hand embroidery went into this piece.
Starburst Dresden got a Judges Merit.  Happy about that because it was quilted on my Q'nique which I have only had for a short time.
 Judges Merit for my jelly roll quilt which I called Forget-Me-Not.

This quilt is called Subtle Differences by Kay Bell and it won Best in show.  It is a double sided quilt and an amazing piece of work.  The detail and execution is stunning and it thoroughly deserved its title.
Kay has a fantastic post with lots more photos of the show. just click here to take you there.

These are a selection of quilts that caught my eye.  I had intended to take more photos when i returned on the Sunday to collect my quilts but i forgot the camera.

This is my large wall hanging which I named Harlequin Points. no ribbons but still a thrill to see it hanging up.

This quilt was by Brigit Schueller and won a first place ribbon, for the bed quilt category. 

 This hand quilted piece was by Andrea Stracke and won a clutch of ribbons.

That's the excitement over for another year so I hope you enjoyed the photos , time to get back to quilting now !!
