The Festival of Quilts 2015 - Part Five - Winners in each Category

The Festival of Quilts has a section cordoned off, where the winning quilts are already hung, but are covered - draped with cloths - until 2pm on the first day. I stood in anticipation alongside the crowds of onlookers waiting to see the best quilts in each category. Having seen the rest of the quilts in show, I knew the winning pieces would have to be something very special to win a place under the cloths. I wasn't disappointed, they were amazing. Every inch of every piece represented hours and hours of painstaking work. Stunning colours, textures and surface design.  This year I especially liked the pieces made by the schools and the young quilters.
Here are the winners. Enjoy.
