Bunbury International Quilt Challenge 2017 & Exhibit at the Craft fair in Perth

This years Perth Craft fair was on again this weekend and it also had the Quilts from the Bunbury International Quilt Challenge on display.

 

A very exciting time for me as not only it is a great opportunity to shop for new fabric, stencils, paints and more. I also have an entry in the Bunbury Intl. Quilt Challenge. My Quilt 'Picture Postcard Memories" was awarded a 'Highly Commended".

The theme for the Challenge was '20 years ago' and every entry received the same piece of fabric that had to be used in the Quilt.

20 years ago I traveled the world so I thought what a great way to highlight those good memories. The fabric that had to be used can be seen in the corner sections of my Quilt and I used some hot fix diamontes to highlight the places and Cities that I have been to.

Over 20 Quilts were entered from around the world.   The latest issue of the Magazine 'Down Under Quilts' is featuring an article of this Challenge and has included photos of some of the Quilts.

 

Here are photos of the Challenge Quilts and the article in the Magazine

Enjoy!
