The quilt show was spectacular. Here are a few of the winners to share with you.
"Splendor In The Grass" by Melinda Bula
BEST OF SHOW
(Sorry for the poor photo. There was a crowd around this quilt, so I kept getting bumped.
I did get to talk to Melinda for a while. She is so nice and does not put pressure on herself to be perfect when making her quilts. She uses 30wt. Sulky rayon thread matching it in her bobbin so the back of her quilt is thread art of the front. She uses black fabric for the back. Thank you Melinda for spending the time to talk with me.)
"Bird Bath Social"
by Ann Horton
(This quilt had a lot going on. Definitely a quilt that reflected the theme "Celebrate Spring"!
"After The Rains"
by Betty Busby
(This quilt was unbelievable to me. I have seen it in magazines before but in reality it is
an outstanding piece and such an unusual subject matter. The colors are just a beautiful
range of subtle changes. The quilting was perfect. I would have placed this higher than HM.)
by Marlene Shea
Love how this artist achieved making such a strong statement for all of us.
by David Taylor
(David won Best of Show last year for his Rooster quilt. This one was just as detailed but perhaps too close of a theme to lasts year to win again. But he did get a ribbon.)
I will post more when I have more time. Hope those of you who were unable to attend enjoy seeing these here, but there is nothing like seeing them in person.
