I should be sending a lot of message to quilters of Ireland and asking them to enter the quilt marquee at the Tinahely show.
However due to the Covid-19, the show has been cancelled for 2020.
As you all know, it is a great space to see beautiful quilts from all side of Ireland hang up proudly and we all admire them and get inspired for the next project. There is very limited number of this kind of event happens in Ireland and Tinahely show has been there for quilts over 20 years!
Instead, we can have virtual one online, can’t we? Where we can share what we made last 12 month and get inspired to start new one?
I have created a virtual Tinahely Quilt Marquee!
You can enter up to three quilts you have finished last 12 month and all the entry must be by the Irish resident quilters.
There is no quilt judges to award prizes for this year. Instead, public will vote for their favourite quilts and there is a prize from me!
Any style of quilts can be entered and there is no category. Quilts made at the workshops or classes, made from kits or bought patterns, original design or traditional one and small wall hanging to king size!
Entries must be made between 15th July and 2nd August 2020. The public vote will open from the 3rd to 9th August 2020 through the website.
Looking forward to seeing all your pretties soon!
