Quilts came home today
My Kona Bay 2009 challenge winner, "Butterfly Dance", and my Batik Beauties entry, "Fish and Chips" both came home yesterday, in time for show and tell at Chester Ps & Qs last night. As usual, I never got to show the completed quilts to my own groups, because they weren't finished until the last possible minute.
It is always nice to have quilts come home after touring. Grosvenor Exhibitions did a great job on the packaging, with loads of bubble wrap (which has gone to be recycled for packaging at our local Cats' Protection charity shop).
Next year's challenge is "Cherry Blossoms and Maple Leaves" for the Oriental Fabric Challenge (formerly the Kona Bay Challenge) and "A Batik Landscape" for Batik Beauties. You can get entry forms from Grosvenor Exhibitions. There's plenty of time left to plan and make your entries - the batik challenge has a set size of 1 metre and the other challenge a minimum size only (it doesn't have to be large) - so why not have a go?
