As far as I can see two Australian quiltmakers have won awards at this year's major quilt competition. Check out all the winners yourself here.
Congratulations go to Ming Hsu of SA for her quilt, Conversations with Diane, which won First Place in the Merit Quilting, Machine category sponsored by Bernina® of America.
Southern Delight, by Mariya Waters of Melbourne, was awarded an honourable mention in the Art-Pictorial category sponsored by AccuQuilt
Both Mariya’s and Ming’s quilts have previously been published in Down Under Quilts for awards they won in Australia.
And, the top prize - The Handi Quilter® Best of Show Award, ($10,000*) went to Sue McCarty of Utah for her quilt, Harmony Within.
Well done, one and all.
