Stonestead Outdoor Quilt Festival 2014

After being rained off the previous weekend, it was all go on Sunday.

Unfortunately we were running a wee bit late so only just got to whip around to see everything before prize giving! We were so rushed that I didn't even get the chance to take proper photos of the quilts I loved getting the tags so I could see who made them (damn it).

Very glad we managed to get there though, as Short Critic#1 won the youth section!
So this post will be the quilts I loved that I actually got the details of. Without further ado:
Short Critic #1 with his quilt "My Lion" above him

Oriental Dream by Jill Madgwick
 Loved the soft creamy tones of this and Sue Burnett did a fabulous job of custom quilting it:

 BEST IN SHOW: Gorgeous attic windows quilt where every window was a cross-stitched cat picture

Purrfect Cats by Wanda Borowicz

 My favourite panel "I don't need your attitude, I have one of my own"

Summer's day by Trish Barry

The next two are by the lovely Christine Singleton (a quilt buddy from Wellington Guild)
