QuiltWest 2012!

What a lovely day out - it all seemed to go too quickly! I just might have to try to get back! Our State Guild put on a great display, congratulations to all prize-winners and thank you all exhibitors for great eye-candy!
So many beautiful quilts, and I must admit I didn't really get to photograph and see them all in detail - however, I love this one by Joycelyn Leath.
Pretty Girl and I don't know the story, but wonderful work - I daresay we will see it around a lot.
Here we have Best of Show by dear friend, Yvonne Skodt - I have given her lots of hugs! I wish I had got in up close to show you more.
One of The Best of Australia by Helen Godden - I'm sure she is well known to a lot of you.
My Aussie Hero Quilt - now, Smarty Pants had to rush into this one, it's okay and sort of boyish, but is 16" square, now I have to work out how I will incorporate it into a quilt 42 - 44" wide - a challenge, lol!Look, look, look - my beautiful orchids in their annual bloom. I originally won the Mother in a raffle and she has since been divided, like all Mums who spread themselves so wide!
Happy weekend!

Hi Lurline, gorgeous pics and gorgeous quilts - some people are just so talented. A friend of mine blew me away winning three prizes at Quilt West they will be on my blog tonight. So much inspiration! Must be the Swan River Water (I am a fellow West Aussie and therefore maybe a little biased!) LOL Thanks for sharing!

Pushed the button too soon. Love your block for AHQ - I am sure you will come up with something - two blocks wide and a five inch border perhaps? Love the orchids too!

Looks like a great time at QW. I'm off there tomorrow. Almost didn't make it there this year but fortunately it has worked out for one day.
