Today I went to the Craft Fair in Melbourne - a fabulous day made all the more enjoyable as a result of one of my quilts winning a ribbon. I had entered my Kind David's Modern Crown Quilt in the Longarm section of the Vic Quilters 2010 Showcase and was absolutely thrilled with the Runners Up ribbon.
The quilt is my version of the King David's Crown Quilt by Michelle Yeo - rather than using reproduction fabrics, I have used fresh, modern fabrics with a white background fabric so that the quilting could be a feature.
The machine quilting was inspired by Sharon Schamber. Sharon is a renowned quilter and I was fortunate enough to do a workshop with her last year. I took the unquilted King David's Crown Quilt top along to the class and Sharon assisted in the quilting design stage.
I have extended the quilting in the diamonds into the border of the quilt.
I would like to thank Victorian Quilters Inc, the organisers of Quilt Showcase 2010 for putting on a wonderful Quilt Exhibition. I would also like to thank the generous sponsors of the Longarm catergory including Horsham Patchwork Quilters Inc., Patchers & Quilters of the Hay Plains, Mini Jumbuck and Victoria Can Do Books.
