Malvern 2013

Last weekend was Quilts UK at Malven . I went over last Thursday and again on Sunday  to collect the two quilts that that had been entered and  needed to collect the cup we had won  for our  charity fund raising quilt. 
A big cheer went up when I stepped forward to collect the cup from Roger Cooling of Grosvenor Exhibitions. We had apparently won as a group some years back, well certainly before my time and I have been a member for 20 years.

L To R- Mary, Margaret, Jane, Jill , Helen, Me Sue M and Sue H
Some of the members that were there on Sunday  congregated to have a photo taken in front of the quilt.

I had a phone call on Friday from Virginia  and it was quickly arranged that she would come down to Cheltenham on the bus and we would then head off to Malvern. So for Virginia it was her first Malvern and she did the honours with the camera for the photo  shoots.
So for all you Aussie ladies that know Virginia she is getting out and about and hopefully enjoying a little bit of the English quilting scene.

To my surprise I got a Judges Merit rosette for my Butternut and Blue quilt
Got to go I have to polish the cup for our next meeting.- Hmm  I wonder who's going to take on the task of polishing it throughout  the year. ??????????
Will be back next time with some quilt photos from the show.
