We finally had a successful exhibition which was cancelled in 2020 – for obvious reasons we won’t mention. The weather was beautiful and we had a lot of visitors. Visitors were asked to vote for their favourite quilt and the results are as follows.
1st place Christine Franklin with Borders
2nd place Lynn Quinn with Sunrise and Shadows
3rd place Christine Franklin with Hexagons
Here’s to our next Quiltfest in 2026
- ‘Utterly amazing’
- ‘Such a spectacle’
- ‘Excellent quality and variety’
- ‘An inspirational, beautifully displayed exhibition and well worth the journey from Wimbledon’.
These were only some of the comments made by hundreds of visitors at Quiltfest 2017 in June held at Badminton School.
The exhibition committee was lead by Sue Wakefield and the rest of the team were Kathy Eagle, Alison Nicholls, Jan Hassard, Becky Freeman, Christine Jenkins, Raita Sawyer, Ruth Case and Jo Clymo.
