While at the Symposium, I whizzed quickly around the main exhibition one lunch break taking photos of the work that I liked - consequently, my rushed visit is reflected in some of the photos (like the second one) being somewhat out of focus.
The first photo is a couple of entries in a "Think Outside the Square" challenge, where the quilts were not allowed to be square and needed to be different in other ways too - the oval one on the left is actually made of coffee filters. I thought these two looked very appealing together.
The tumbling blocks quilt, while a traditional design (and one that I've always loved), won a Merit Award for Best Use of Colour and is by Gwen Wanigasekera of New Zealand. Gwen is a well-known quilter and was also a tutor at Symposium.
More photos to come!
