Throughout the show, visitors enjoyed the exhibited quilts made by members of the group, and an additional exhibition, showcasing baby quilts made for the Grace Centre for Newborn Care at Westmead Children’s Hospital.
As well as enjoying the quilt displays, visitors were able to buy original waggas, quilts and gifts, shop for their sewing needs from the Material Obsession shop and enjoy tea, coffee and local, homemade goodies.
The 'Alysoun Ryves Best of Show' award was presented to Karen Malone for her quilt: 'Welcome to the Labyrinth'. Karen also won the Hangers prize.



The Viewers Choice and the Members Choice Awards were unanimously won by Helena Fooij for her quilt, My MO BOM Journey.

On the final afternoon of the show, Group President, Elva Salter, organised the drawing of the winning raffle tickets. The winners were Julie Quinn from Manly Vale who selected the contemporary design: Liquorice Allsorts


and Lisa James from Greenwich won the traditional design, Circles of the Past


At the Group's 34th birthday celebrations in September, Quilt show coordinator, Meg Moodie, will present a large cheque to the Brain and Mind Centre at the University of Sydney, to continue the research work of Assoc. Professor Elizabeth Scott into youth mental health. On the same day, the little cot quilts will be presented to caring staff at the Grace Centre for Newborns. A day to celebrate the success of the show.
We look forward to the 18th biennial quilt show in 2018. Look forward to seeing you there.
