'Quilts in Cae Hir Gardens'
our 6th year.
Here are the results from 2017.


"Our first year with (almost) no rain!"

Cae Hir Gardens, a stunning RHS partner garden on the edge of Cribyn village in Ceredigion, plays host to this annual event.

2018 will see a number of changes to Quilts in Cae Hir. We will be running 2 catagories – the usual open competition and as 2018 has been named year of the sea here in Wales we will be holding an extra competition. The theme of the extra competition will be The Sea and entries are limited to 2’ x 2’ (61cm x 61cm)

Overview:

The event is open to all quilters - and several new quilters submitted an entry this year. Each quilt was numbered and entered into a guidebook. Visitors walked round the stunningly maintained gardens and viewed each quilt, most of which could be seen from many angles.

Everyone was given a voting sheet and encouraged to make notes and list their favourites down. At the end of the day the votes were counted and a rosette was awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for the day.

On Sunday all votes were re-counted and an overall winner and two runner-up quilts were announced.

2nd place went to quilt no. 4 “Cherries”. Judy received a stunning box of threads donated by Calico Kate, Lampeter.
