Caroline Sharkey 1st Prize Winner Sydney Quilt Show

OMGoodness ..

It was a HUGE thrill to win first prize for my quilt entry at Sydney Quilt Show this week, I am so excited! and honored to have my quilt “Star Talk” chosen in this special category sponsored by BERNINA Australia. The quilt depicts the night sky filled with stars and glow.

My quilt statement reads…

The Night Sky and magnitude of Stars seen from a Desert Landscape just blows your mind! The Southern Hemisphere offers some spectacular sky, such as the Magellanic Clouds.
A Star Talk ‘On Country’ by Aboriginal Elders is a MUST!

I will be taking my ‘Star Talk’ Quilt to Uluru with me in August for the Sewing Up a Storm in the Desert Textile Art Retreat that I host every 2 years….this year will again be very special as we attend the Field of Lights exhibition/desert installation by Bruce Munro and a Star Talk on night outings together in this magical place at Australia’s Red Centre in the Simpsons Desert at Uluru.

Thank you BERNINA for the 215 sewing machine prize with Art Skin of my quilt on it and QuiltNSW for the prestigious award ⭐️ I had such a wonderful few days at the Quilt Show sharing it with close friends and so many lovely supportive people … Thank you 🙏

Please Note the beautiful Quilt next to mine is ‘Stars of the South’ by
