Just in case you’re one of the three people in the world that haven’t been told…..my Bowie quilt won 2nd prize in the Open Pictorial category as well as Judge’s Choice award at Brisbane Quilt and Craft Show today. Many thanks to the Apatcheez who were there as the cheer squad, to the class who sent me the victory photo and to everyone else who sent their good wishes. I really appreciate your kind words.
This is what was written on the attachment to the quilt:
“Bowie was unpredictable, theatrical, cutting-edge, genius. Colour here reflects his flamboyance. The quilting reflects his stage personas: Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, the Thin white Duke – as ghosts. Beyond them no quilting signifying the void that his passing has left.” I would have said more but I was only allowed 40 words!
I’m possibly the only person in the world that hadn’t heard, that’s wonderful!! I am so excited for you. Can’t wait to see it hanging.
I’ll be white-gloving on Saturday afternoon at the show
Congratulations Kaye, was such a buzz for it to not only be one of the first quilts to lay eyes on but that your amazing creation an talent has been so justly rewarded. Loved that it was positioned by itself so it could be the highlight that it is. Heather L

And the papers want to know whose shirt you wear …”
( couldn’t resist quoting David )
Looking forward to seeing your hero today at the show !
Fabulous reply! Actually I feel like a rock star myself. i may need to get an agent to deal with all the fanmail – or do i just need a bigger hat?
Thanks Pat. See you then.
Congratualations Kay!Amazing work!
I love reading your blog and seeing
the beautiful things the ladies have made!
My kids moved to the Gold Coast and have new jobs there.
Maybe when I visit them at Christmas for a month I can get to your shop again! Say from Canada to them!
Thanks Evelyn. Maybe we should have an excursion to Canada to have a class with you!!
I was one of the three so let me congratulate you Kaye on a wonderous piece of creativity. Never in doubt your Bowie Quilt would be a show winner as well as a show stopper. Best wishes. Jane
