2011 HOKH Maidstone Quilt Show Results

A big thanks to everyone for making this the best ever show!  Take a look at the slideshow to see the magnificent quilts on display.  The weather was glorious and the mood was bubbly.  The whole event resulted in a cheque to the Heart of Kent Hospice for £5100!!

Winners of our raffle as follows:  1st prize to Ann Hill, 2nd prize to Sheldon, 3rd prize to Steve Coates
Congratulations and hope you love and cherish these beautiful quilts.

Visitor's choice winner was number 9, Memories by Claudia Taylor.  The quilting is superb and unfortunately the photos do not do it the justice deserved.  I did try to take several photos in order that all the detail could be appreciated.

Thanks also go to all the volunteers for their hard work and enthusiasm.  Without them the show just couldn't go on.

Hope to see everyone again next year.  Dates are a month later, 31st August - 2nd September 2012 in the North Barn, Aylesford Priory, Aylesford, Kent.  If you are entering an exhibit, please make sure you get your form in early to avoid disappointment.  Numbers are restricted.

If anyone has taken photos of the show, please email me so that I can post them on the blog.  I'm sure everyone would love to see them.
