QuiltWest 2009!

Oh, this is a real mixed bag of pics - many more to come! What a great day - pop over to visit Julia to hear all her good news - it was certainly a big day for her!

Above, Best of Show, a very beautiful quilt created by our QuiltWest Convenor, Sheila Pye! Congratulations Sheila, so well deserved!


Yes, that's my style - can't go too far without telling you about the above - this is Jenny Kingwell of amitie and the Block of the Month she has created - name? Green Tea and Sweet Beans - I think! Now, BOM's are not my style, but oh, I just loved this one and can't wait for the first parcel!

Our Darling Baby Girlfriend! Shari of Mumsyblossom's World with her beautiful big smile, as usual! Shari has been QuiltWest Treasurer for oh, at least 4 years - such a busy little bee and she loves it all!

Best Art Quilt by Ruth de Vos! Ruth is a young mother of quite a family of very small children - amazing her work!
Above, works of our Guest Judge, Sharyn Hall. Many of you will know of Sharyn, a mixed media artist and contemporary quiltmaker who travels nationally and internationally to teach, study and exhibit!
One of the Best of Australia - I am not sure which state - a really lovely quilt! What a busy day with snapping pics, lot of socializing, shopping, oh, yes! Lots to show you in future Posts, just hope you enjoy it all!
A long day, train trip home, then out for a belated Mother's Day Dinner at our local tavern. Just look at DD and grandchildren - what a wonderful ending to a lovely day!

I am very happy!
