Photos from the NOTYQ Exhibition

I've finally downloaded photos from the exhibition. Unfortunately, they haven't come out very well with the lighting
but it will give you an idea anyway.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 This is Austin's new quilt. Now the exhibition is over he can have it! He's been waiting since last year but I wanted to keep it clean!
 Austin and Nelson had fun doing the activity sheet for children. Here they are counting triangles and listing colours!
 There was a pin cushion challenge. This is the one I made. What do you think of the pins? They were made for me by the lovely Amanda of Krafty Panda and I thought they would be a nice addition.
 
So for my first time as convenor, I think the Exhibition was a success. Only one minor hiccup. One of the committee members and I were locked in a dressing room we were using to count the Viewer's Choice votes. Something was wrong with the lock. We had to wait until we heard someone go by and they got the maintenance man to get us out! We certainly had a good laugh. Leanne gave me a ribbon bow making lesson while we waited for help. At least we had a toilet there if needed!

There were so many inspiring quilts. I realised I didn't get to photograph all the quilts. I kept getting sidetracked. I haven't even got a photo of the winner of the Viewer's Choice!

Gorgeous quilts! Some of them are so tiny. Thanks for sharing.
Your pincushion is adorable with its matching pins.
Glad someone came by so you could finally get out of that room. I would hate to have read that you were posting your blog from there - lol.

It was a great show Christine.

Thanks so much for all the hard work you (and the rest of the committee) put in.

I didn't know you got locked in - I hope it wasn't too long - at least you have a funny story to tell.

How gorgeous they all are. Nothing like a quilt show to get the creativity flowing. I always want to rush home and sew!
