"How nice to see quilts from first time exhibitors too."

Cae Hir Gardens, a stunning RHS partner garden on the edge of Cribyn village in Ceredigion, played host to an annual event - 'Quilts in Cae Hir Gardens'. One of the organisers, Karen Cocksedge of Karen's Quilts, was quoted as saying - "As we move from year to year, we are grateful for all the support shown to us by quilters and sponsers who have made this event a growing success story"

1st Place went to"Neptune's Lake and Forest" by Karin Pope, who won a bundle of fabrics, threads and various sewing aids donated by Coats Crafts.

3rd place went to "Peake at the Planets" by the Twine and W(h)ine Group who got a year's subscription to British Patchwork and Quilting Magazine.

The region 12 winner was "Sally's Stars" by Gwen Jones who got a £50 voucher to spend at Calico Kate's in Lampeter.

Overview:

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 the trail allowed them to view each quilt, which was hung in full view from the paths.

Those who wanted to cast a vote were given a voting sheet 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 "The Black Hole" by Pat Beech who got an inspiration pack of threads from WonderFil.
