Are you getting tired of looking at quilts? I hope not.. at least you want to hang in there for today's post and the winner of the prestigious title "Best in the World" - can you imagine having a ribbon that said that?! Wow!!
So - let's have a drumroll.... here it is: Chinese Journey in Three Parts, 66" x 64" by Stephanie Crawford of the UK.
"This quilt was inspired by an extraordinary trip to China to visit my son who was living in an ancient temple precinct in a remote part of Hubei Province studying Doacsin. I have three outstanding memories of our journey together from Beijing to Wudang and the triptych represents them. The quilt is wholecloth. It was painted and appliquéd and then densely free-motion quilted.

Thanks to Sandi Mac for the above photo. I had only taken one full shot, and just as I snapped it,
someone stepped in front of me... I did however take lots of closeup shots so you could enjoy the details and the fabulous quilting....
