2015 SHOW WINNERS
BEST IN SHOW
Rachaeldaisy – Clamshell Carousel (Modern Traditionalism)
This quilt began with an idea to machine piece clamshells because I didn’t have the patience to sew them by hand. How funny that by the time I reached the borders I decided to make and applique a zillion yoyos, all by hand.
It has been described as an “exploding piñata” and an “illustration of hullabaloo” but I chose the name Clamshell Carousel. Just like a carousel with flashing lights, lively music and dancing horses this quilt has all the trimmings – clamshells, ric rac, colourful quilting and yo yos. It almost make you dizzy!
