My Civil War Heroes got First Place and Best Hand Applique. I always look forward to reading the judges comments and for this quilt they were all favorable :)
Early Stars got Honorable Mention. The judges felt the border was too wide (overpowering) for the size of the blocks.
Rachel's Cosmic Fragments 2. Rachel makes the most amazing fabrics. "The background was created using thickened dyes, discharge paste, freezer paper and Thermofax screening." The quilt is hand embroidered and hand quilted.
Chocolate, Raspberry and Cheddar by Laura Wagner who challenged herself to make a "pink" quilt she would be happy with.
Garden Path by Betsy Vinegrad. Designed for a class at City Quilters using a "split-complementary color scheme and some negative space."
Celestial Parquetry by Judy Josephson was "loosely based on Kaffe Fassett's Paisley Stars quilt."
Colorful Hexies by Barbie Vanderfleet-Martin. She is my go-to person for machine quilting :)
I was lucky to find this piece at the show so at least I have one that meets the criteria--wavy concentric lines.
But what about this one with jagged lines and dots?
Or this reproduction?
A squiggly with dots? Oh my! So much to learn :)
