Best of Show - QuiltWest Exhibition

Julia has shown you a photo of Adriana with her winning quilt. Just thought you may like to see a little more of the detail ,beautiful colours and wonderful workmanship.

The quilt is called A Quilter's Encyclopaedia: Australian Parrots and Adriana says she spends as much time doing her research as she does making the quilt.It is an original design, hand appliqued, pieced and embroidered; it is machine quilted.

We are so fortunate to have this talented lady in our association and she is an inspiration to fellow members. For many years, Adriana has won Best of Show and we are all so proud of her. Maybe one day she will enter in Houston and a lot of you US girls will be able to see the beauty and quality of her work first hand.
Off to work at the show again today - thanks for visiting!

That is a magnificent quilt. It is hard to imagine all the work and thought that went into it.
