A wonderful quilt

I still have more to show you from the annual quiltmeeting. Like this wonderful quilt made of Sølvi Krokeide. I got her permission to show this quilt on my blog. She got 3rd prize in open cathegory. And she also got the prize for best handwork, the boards favorite and perhaps the best prize of all, visitors favorite.
The quilt has so many details from a quilt festival. From when you enter the festival, get your registration tickets, visit the quiltshow, the shops aso. The best part is that you can recognize a lot of people in it. Sølvi has been a boardmember in the Norwegian quilt association and she had captured a lot of us other boardmembers in action at the quilt. We all had a good laugh when we found ourselfs at the quilt.

I'm one of the persons in this section. Sitting on the floor sewing with a glass of red wine besides me. Nancy is sitting in the chair also having a glass of red wine in her hands.

The annual meeting.

There is always lectures at the quilt festival.

Show and tell.

I guess this has to be from the rest area where the ladies rest out after shopping.

Workshop

Quilt exhibition


The entrance and registration.

And of course the shop.
Congratulations to Sølvi Krokeide(no blogger).
You deserves all your prizez
because this is such a wonderful quilt.
And todays saying is to you.
Because I know you have had a lot of fun making this quilt
thinking of all the people you have sewn into the quilt.

Saying for today:
Memories are stitched with love

Kjempeflott. Utrolig hva som går ann å fange i en Quilt.
Ja det er flere skikkelser jeg kjenner igjen fra NQF-miljøet i Sølvi sin qulit. Et flott stykke arbeid.

Wow. Thank you for sharing this quilt. Any chance you can get Solvi to be a guest blogger on your blog and explain how she created the people. Such great detail!

What a cool quilt!

Dolores said...

I love it!!! She really must have had fun making it. Please tell her it is a viewers' choice in blogland too. We should give her an award. Sølvi captured so many different personalities - I had a smile on my face looking at all the characters. I wish I could take the quilt with me to our guild meeting tomorrow night. Thank you very much for showing it to us and especially for all of the close-ups. You made my day and please convey our appreciation to Sølvi for all of her hard work.
