The event is open to all quilters - and several new quilters submitted an entry this year.
Each quilt was numbered and entered into a guidebook. Visitors walked round the stunningly maintained gardens
and viewed each quilt, most of which could be seen from many angles.
Everyone was given a voting sheet and encouraged to make notes and list their favourites down. At the end of the
day the votes were counted and a rosette was awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for the day.
On Sunday all votes were re-counted and an overall winner and two runner-up quilts were announced.
2nd place went to quilt no. 4 “Cherries”. Judy received a stunning box of threads donated by Calico Kate,
1st place went to quilt no. 14 “Bird” and Barbara won a beautiful hamper of fabrics, threads and other quilting
goodies donated by Mez Crafts co.uk.
3rd place went to quilt no 20 “Weeds and Bugs”. Lorraine, who told us she had never won anything before, was
delighted to received a years subscription to British Patchwork and Quilting magazine.
