2017 Lyn Ballinger Challenge Luncheon

The girls from the self-styled "Naughty Table" offered to slap up a bit of lunch for us. The tables were set with a real party theme including funny hats, poppers and lots of chocolates.
The food looked very good and tasted even better.
Sheila welcomed our Challenge judge, Audrey then the eating got underway.
There were several 'stars' involved in making our Quilt Exhibition such a success and Sheila handed out 'Star' awards to Karen J, Sandy, Wendy, Sue W, Karen D and Sue A.
Audry anounced the winners of the Lyn Ballinger Challenge.
1st Prize winner is Gaye with 'Candles'
2nd Prize winner is Sue W with 'Celebrate'
3rd Prize winner was this cutie,
created by Heather, who was unable to attend the luncheon.

Inge is now the current holder of our perpetual trophy for the Lyn Ballinger Challenge Viewer’s Choice award.

The other trophy to be presented today is the 'Bossy Stitchers' perpetual trophy in memory of our past member, Janet Smith.
Marlene was the viewer’s choice favourite for best quilt in show and Gwen proudly handed her the 'Bossy Stitchers' trophy of a quilt stand.
Once again a great show is over. We all had a wonderful time with over 600 visitors passing through the doors, a significant cheque will be presented to Assistance Dogs Sunshine Coast from our raffle quilts and our winners will be enjoying spending their vouchers donated by our merchants Penny from Patchwork Angel, Forest Glen and Kim from Kimz Sewing and Patchwork Warana.
Thank you Lorraine for the pics and words to make this post possible.
