Kapiti Quilt Show 2021

I went to the Kapiti Quilters Exhibition last weekend.  It was great to see so many people there supporting the guild.  

There were many lovely quilts on display and I'll show you my favourites.

These first three quilts were all made by the same person.  I found myself smiling as I stood in front of the first one, because I don't like doilies, and I don't like orange, but this arrangement just works and I liked it! What struck me first about this quilt was the finishing because the edges are straight and the quilt sits flat.  Congratulations Dianne on winning best Traditional Quilt - One Person, and a Judge's Award.   

The next two quilts are Kaffe quilts, so of course I was drawn to them, but again, the colours work perfectly together, and the finishing is perfect .  As I read the label and saw "Dianne Barnden" as the maker again, I wasn't surprised.  

Next up are some other quilts that caught my eye.

Best in Show went to this beauty by Vickie McGoverin - Congratulations Vickie!!

Finally, this quilt by Chris Bongiovanni deserves a special mention.  Isn't it amazing?

So, that was the Kapiti Quilters Exhibition.  It was lovely to meet up with friends too and do a spot of shopping. The best bit was that I was inspired to start something new! More on that next week.  

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  What have you been up to this week?  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

What stunning quilts. However did the judge decide which was the overall winner? I agree, the colours chosen by Dianne Barnden were super. What a beautiful Show you visited.

Wow! I can’t choose a favorite. They are all so different one from another and beautiful. Going Around in Circles in Lockdown gave me a giggle. Perfect representation in the quilt of that feeling.

Goodness, I can see why Vickie won best in show. I still love a classic applique quilt.
