Festival of Quilts II – the Winners

In this second post from the Festival of Quilts, I will show the winning quilts, – or some of them, anyway. I know there are two or three that I missed, – and at least one of them because it was so crowded every time I passed, that I did not get to take a photo.

These are only the first place winners. Some of the second and third place winners will probably appear in between other spectacular quilts I will show in later posts.

poorandrich101- pictorial

I sat in at the awards ceremony, and the one that stayed on my mind after the session, was “Poor and Rich” by Janneke de Vries-Bodzinga.  At first I thought I had seen the quilt before, but when I looked up her website later, I realized it must have been one of her other quilts I had seen, which are similar in style, and have also won prizes earlier.

The quilt won first in the Pictorial category.

fineart-birgitte kopp

The one above won the Fine Art Quilt Masters category, which was a bit special as these quilts were both juried and judged.

The quilt was made by Brigitte Kopp, and in the photo above you can read the artist’s description of her quilt.

sunrise moonrise433

This one was first in the Art quilt category. It is a layered, pojagi style quilt called “Sunrise, Moonrise”, and was made by Mercè Gonzales Desedamas from Spain.

The judges said it very well.

goodlife-742

Philippa Naylor made it to the top of the Traditional category with her quilt “The Good Life”.

Both the applique and the quilting is done free hand. Beautiful design and colours too.

lekogmoro-1146

This is the winner of the Young Quilter/Embroiderer age 5-8 group, “Lek og moro” by Anine Stener from Norway. Her cousin got a second place in the age 9-11 group, so here is a family of quilters.

secretgarden-1125

The winner of the age 9-11 group was this one above: “Bottom of my Garden” by Danai Rae Matthews.

 

The quilt above, “Unwelcome Guest” by Millie Ayers, won the age 12-16 group. It is one of a kind, – a quilt to remember.

ahundredacres-341

This one won the Miniature category.  It is called “A Hundred Acres”, and was made by Roberta Le Poidevin.

ahundredacres-341b

It is a miniature version of  a larger quilt called “A Thousand Acres”, which was exhibited in the European Art Quilt Foundations gallery at the Festival. You can see a photo of the large one in this blog post.

In this blog you can see some photos of the other miniatures.

beach huts540-group

Here is the winner of the Group Quilt category.  It was made by the 6 members of the Tanglewood Quilters, and is called “Beach Huts”

 

The quilt has lots of details, some of them three dimensional.

The two person category was headed by this quilt, “Dear Mrs Morcom” by Mark Mann and Bridget Mann. Patchwork made of recycled men’s suits, and silk screened photos.

The quilt is made up of flying geese blocks, and the technique reminded me of this quilt called Kaleidoscope Man.

tuliptime-173

The Quilters Guild Challenge had a garden theme this year, and the winner was “Tulip Time” by Yvonne Brown.

Lots of different techniques and fabrics were used to create this beauty.

clock-969

The last one in this post will be the one above, which won the Quilt Creations group. It was made by Kate Crossley, and is very appropriately called “Clock”.

It is a working grandfather clock. The cabinet was made of paper and fabric maché, and lots of different techniques have been applied to reach the resulting look. The artist says: “The work is full of references to time, space, change and decay as well as growth and life.”

See for yourselves below. The space in front of the clock had a crowd at almost all times, so several trips were necessary to get these detail shots.

Kate Crossley had also two other works on display at the Festival. They will appear in some later post.

On the home page of the Festival of Quilts there is a comprehensive list of winners’ names, and some photos were also posted on their facebook page.

On this blog some of the winning quilts that I missed are shown.

  1. You did very well at photographing and writing about the quilts ! I think beach huts was my favourite, but some of the techniques in the others were amazing even if they are not to my taste

  2. Thank-you for sharing these photos of wonderful works of art! I never cease to be amazed at what can be expressed in this medium…
