One of the loveliest things about starting Aussie Heroes has been all the lovely people I have come to know, both the serving members and those who sew. Yesterday one of them, Liz, shared with me that she had won a prize in the huge West Australian Quilt Show called Quilt West. I am so glad that she did! Liz sews the most gorgeous original quilts for Aussie Heroes so I knew whatever she entered in the show would be wonderful but I had no idea!!! And what Liz didn't know till she got to the Show was that she had won more than one Prize!
Check them out!
Liz received a First for this one in the First Time Entrant category
and a third for this one in the same category!
The theme of the exhibition was "Going Round in Circles" and this stunning quilt one came 2nd in that section and also won the trophy for hand applique. Is this not stunning? So pretty and so much detail and don't even get me started on the quilting!!!
If you want to see more of Liz's quilts you can check out her Aussie Hero ones here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. Liz is a very modest lady - but I felt her quilts needed to be shared and I knew you would like to see them with her permission. Now I just need to convince her she needs a blog!
Till next time.................happy stitching!
