14th Annual quilt exhibition

The 14th Annual Kuwait textile arts exhibition saw 150 exhibits and 30 winners  in all.The best of show was a beautiful  art quilt called ‘My Omani friend’  by Hayfa Al Mughni , a well deserved win.The exhibition also brought a few pleasant surprises to me. Ailing from a  frozen shoulder most part of the year,  I   could not do my 100% and did not expect much. But it is always a nice feeling to win a few awards. My ‘ReLeaf’ in the applique category won the second place. This quilt is dear to my heart as it is a very original thought and composition and i had gone all around Kuwait picking leaves(it is difficult find trees here) painting them and getting the impression to applique.

A3d box called ‘Contained’ which won highly commendable ribbon , it was  a difficult piece because of the “Y’ seams  and the intricate quilting  around  it with color on color. This one took me month to make.And there was a easy one, a parrot  called ‘Shuka’  which I  had completed in three days:)

I  also had a fun piece in the home accessory section. it was fun to do these Yoyo’s while I was suffering from the frozen shoulder and could not use my machine to quilt.’Blooming Yoyo’s’ was hung in the home accessory section.
