Tinahely show 2017

Tinahely Agricultural Show is held on the first of August, bank holiday and there is a quilt marquee with quilts from all over the Ireland. They are judged by qualified judges and awards are given in each categories. The categories are divided in size, from child’s to king. Also there are wall hanging and hand quilting ones too.

Since it is held in the agricultural show, they have no maker’s name on quilts. So I have no idea who made which except a few.

Not sure if visible but I liked quilting on this trip around the world. It is panto but it looks nicely going with this quilt.

These two are made by a same person, I was told. Those fussy cuts and meticulous hand piecing to match them up are amazing(I am sorry to not take close up photos)!

This beauty was hand pieced, appliquéd and quilted. Antique colour is lovely too.

Do send your quilts next year. More the merrier!

  1. It’s too bad that the quilters names were unknown. They should get credit for all that fine work. I always like seeing those Lucy Boston style quilts, The lozenge-shaped hexagons lend themselves to all kinds of fussy cutting, and though they take a lot of time to piece, they are quite addictive. Thanks for taking us along.

  2. Thank you for giving an impression of the show, and thanks for featuring my quilt (the woven one)! I just got it back, and I’m chuffed at winning a prize, too 🙂
