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, we especially welcome new quilters this year. Each quilt will be numbered and entered into a guidebook. Whilst visitors walk round the beautiful gardens they can view every quilt as all quilts are displayed alongside the natural pathways through the garden.

Everyone gets a voting sheet and are encouraged to list their favourite quilts. At the end of each day the visitor votes will counted and a rosette awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourites of the day.

On Sunday all votes, from every day, get re-counted and an overall winner and two runner-up quilts are announced and prizes awarded.

Last years winner: Quilt no. 14 "Bird" . Barbara won a beautiful hamper of fabrics, threads and other quilting goodies donated by Mez Crafts co.uk.
