After all our planning and hard work for our show, we are getting back to normal and onto other challenges. Many of us have shared little anecdotes and stories from talking to the lovely people who visited our show. The lady who had won our raffle from the 2016 show told me that she just loved the quilt she had won and it is on her bed.
It is always very nice to have feedback about our quilts.
The show weekend is very special where we catch up with former members, members of other quilting groups, and friends and families who visit. It is so pleasant to sit with family members over a cup of tea or coffee amongst the beautiful quilts.
One lady brought in a Wagga that she had purchased at auction. It had been made about 1905 and was beautifully embroidered. There were a few small holes to be mended but it was amazing.
The raffle quilts were won by June Forbes and Iris. June lives nearby and came to the hall as soon as I rang her. She was thrilled to be a winner. June loved both the quilts but chose the bright and colourful "Circles" quilt for her children and grandchildren.

Now for more Judge's Choice Quilts above and below.

"All around my fabric stash" by Beryl R. Beryl started this quilt on our retreat and finished it off with hundreds of hexagons. Truly a labour of love and such a happy quilt.
