Irene Story of Toowoomba has just won first prize in the Commercially Quilted section of the Royal National Exhibition, Brisbane (the Ekka) for her quilt entitled "Billabong". This was quilted by KoolKat Quilting (me) and we are both really excited about this win!
Irene's original design is based on a drawing by Aboriginal artist, Geoffrey Manthey. Irene is currently developing more work in this style and I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of her on the winners' podium. Well done, Irene!
The photos were taken before the binding went on the quilt. It has quite a wide black binding on it.
