Queensland Quilters Annual Show

What a surprise - I won Third Prize for this little quilt in the the Predominantly Pieced, Amateur, Section.  I loved doing this quilt - the pattern was frrom an Australian Patchwork & Quilting magazine - although I changed the background blocks to use up some gingham I have had in the cupboard forever and then raided the stash for the applique petals & took them overseas to have some easy handwork to do. It just never entered my head that "Petals on Ginham" could win a prize. Check out other prize winners at

Here is my "Daughter of the Forest" entrant - she was up against some really hot competition - she survived the January floods and I have no doubt she'll survive & have more stories to tell.


  1. So happy to see that quilt win - it's fresh and really carries the tradition with a new twist. But your lovely daughter - she will be much admired at the show, and will have other outings I'm sure.

  2. Congratulations Chris! Love the daughter quilt too.

  3. Wow, that's terrific, congrats!
