Beyond the Dream, the Impossible Dream!

Congratulations, Jocelyne Leath! Our Past President of our state guild, Western Australian Quilters Association, has done us proud at the International Quilt Association in Houston !

Jocelyne is a truly talented and gifted artist and a fine ambassador for our country. She has won First Prize in Art-People Portraits and Figures. Please check out the meaning of what this quilt represents at the Royal Flying Doctor Service Our History/Birth of an Idea!

This pic was taken on my camera at our QuiltWest Show last May and I am sure I have mentioned it previously - I am a great supporter of this wonderful association and feel so privileged to have been able to help.

Congratulations again , Jocelyne, and thank you for your wonderful quilt and being able to spread the news. I believe other Australians have received awards - congratulations to all winners - wish I was there - I look forward to enjoying all the wonderful quilts!

Congrates it is a quilt that shows a great thing the flying doctors. I also would love to go there maybe one year, I better tighten my belt and no quilt shops for a while ahhhhhh not sure I could do that. I have to come up with another plan.

seeing this quilt up close, and listening in on the awards night was such a treat. I think I took more pictures of this quilt than any others that night. Every inch held a new design.
