Some photos of quilts and the WAFTA exhibition at the Perth Craft Fair taken yesterday
This was the first we looked at. The WAFTA - West Australian Fibre and Textile Association had this wonderful exhibition of work done by some of it members.
The work was really wonderful and quite varied.
This is my friend Liz
, and this is one of the two pieces she entered in this exhibition.
Liz also has an on-line store and specialises in English Piecing here
First quilt I need to show you is Julia's
quilt. What a wonderful quilt that is!
Congratulations to Julia...
These samples are on a board advertising a class to be held by Jan Rowe in June of this year...
This was just so interesting and I just wish I could attend...
My Grandfathers Flower Garden by Margaret Smith, an Accredited Judge. When exhibited in the Memories Quilt Exhibition in 1996 It was awarded 3rd Prize in the theme section
It is Machine pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted.
This photo does not do this beautiful quilt justice, but I have included it and will show some details.
It was a double sided quilt and was made and sewn by Jo Northcott
It won Best Longarm quilter.
This is the reverse side of the quilt - Just beautiful .... gold stitching and 'sparkles' too.
These next two photos show some of the wonderful details.
You can tell the quilting was interesting to me :)
