Best of Show - QuiltWest Perth 2013

So many readers never have the opportunity to visit any Craft & Quilt Fair, so I like to show you some beautiful quilts on display whenever I am able to.  Plus, people all over the world love viewing amazing quilting by amateurs and professionals.
Best of Show at QuiltWest Exhibition at the recent Craft & Quilt Fair in Perth, sponsored by Bernina Australia, was awarded to Jocelyne Leath for her 'Papa' which also received First Prize in the Art Quilt Open Section sponsored by Simplicity Australia.  I will also show you some close-ups so as you may appreciate the stitching.

The dark bar extending across the lower edge of my photo was a display prop preventing viewers too close access, not part of the actual quilt - thought you may wonder.
Jocelyne has won many awards and she is no stranger on the tutoring circuit.
Runner-Up Best of Show, sponsored by Expertise Events,
was awarded to Rebecca Stewart-Bartell for her 'Lain Lou'.
My apologies for not snapping this photo better aligned up! 
At times, hard to do when others are viewing too.
Isn't the stitching superb?
I'll show you more when I have a few spare moments.
Hope you enjoy and marvel as I did.
