The Grand National Quilt Show: Off The Wall

The Grand National Quilt Show, Kitchner, Ontario is held each year in Spring. This year's theme was Off The Wall. I think you will agree when you view the entries, that it was a wonderful show.
The Grand Prize winner was Phillida Hargreaves, Kingston, Ontario, for The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
There were two Curator's Choice Awards. They went to Gordana Brelih, Toronto, Ontario for Give Me a Chance and to Jill Buckley, London, Ontario, for Graffiti.
The Award for Innovation went to Lily Lam, Westmount, Quebec, for Taiji - The Supreme Ultimate.
Honourable Mention went to Ilse Anysas-Salkauskas, Cochrane, Alberta, for A Phoenix for the Tar Sands.
Viewer's Choice Award was given to Hilary Rice for The Go Between. Hilary lives on the West Coast of Newfoundland.
Anna Hergert, Moose Jaw, Sk, received the Janome Award of Excellence for her piece Icebergs & Cool Breezes. Anna has visited Newfoundland on several occasions.
I was fortunate to take a class from both Hilary and Anna. Both ladies are very talented and have a wealth of knowledge to share.
