Now I do believe any GOOD blog writer would do research, check categories, phone to find out who won what and write about it all in a well prepared manner. However, I never claimed to be a good blog writer, I am simply 'the' writer. So I will show all the photos sent to me and have the name of the quilter but you unfortunately either have to visit the Bloem Show or attend our next guild meeting to find out everything.
This year the theme of our Bloem Show is "Carnival" and the ladies made decorative masks to carry the theme over into our quilt cupboards. Here these masks can be seen with a quilt from Adie Botha in the background.
In nor particular order, here are some of the quilts on exhibition this year.
Traditional quilt by Magriet Bester. Winning the first prize and the trophy for the Best Traditional Quilt.
Lia Deysel's beginner quilt. Iessie's pride and joy - not the quilt, the person. This is Iessie's daughters' quilt.
First prize for a group quilt went to a Round Robin by the Kwetter Quilters (translated it would mean they talk a heck of a lot.)
Martie-marie Moss entered this quilt. She too is a member of the Kwetter Quilters.
Alta Stemmet's Art quilt got a second prize.
A rather interesting quilt by Christa Gouws.
Calista von Wieligh won the Best Youth Quilt Trophy (under 18) with these 2 entries.
Daisies by Estelle Calitz was the judge's choice.
Jolita Geel won a special prize for the Best Beginner quilt.
Christa Gouws earned herself not only the award for the Most Outstanding quilt at the show but also the Anita Kleynhans trophy for the most points awarded.
A pretty picture quilt entered by Magda Diedericks
I still have 12 more pictures in my folder but I'll end here for today, so keep looking at this space there is more to follow.
