The annual Perth Craft Fair was on last week, finishing yesterday (Sunday). Part of the Craft Fair is QuiltWest, the annual exhibition from members of the West Australian Quilters Association. Some 250 entries were received, and there were special exhibitions as well, so about 300 or more quilts were on display. I took some photos of some of them (there were too many to photograph them all!), but as I was using my phone’s camera and as amateur photos like these don’t do quilts justice, you’ll just have to imagine how good all these quilts were 😉 There are some amazingly talented women (and one man) out there!
(I won a 3rd prize in the art quilts category for my ‘Citrus Explosion‘ — the prize was a pack of various Moda charm squares [large and small] and 2.5 inch squares. Thanks PK Fabrics!)
