Here is the Best in Show from the Mid-Atlantic Quilt show. It was on display at the Quilt Fest.
Best of Show
Rhapsody in Rose by Barbara Clem
And these are the close ups that I took. The quilting is awe inspiring! She has a cross hatch that is.....wait for it......1/4".
How lovely that it is pink ;) I'm sorry the color is off, it was very hard to capture it and get good details. I love the way she created different designs on the solid background through her quilting choices.
And what a lovely binding treatment. The scallops are perfect on this piece!
How nice that a Dear Jane received recognition. I too often feel they are passed over. This one is lovely!
I know, I know, traditional, traditional, that is what I love. This quilt was stunning - honorable mention - deserved more in my opinion. Make a few more ribbons, guys, come on.
You can see all the winning quilts here on the Mancuso Website. Congrats to Bethany Morelli for her "Best Machine Workmanship" and also "Viewers Choice" !
Today is meeting day for the Brownstone Quilters and we'll be displaying the raffle quilt. I cut a block too small for the corners of the quilt - doh - so I made it into a pretty label. Because of its size, I "skim quilted" a little. Its a term that I use to describe quilting that doesn't go through to the other side.
Someone has a bit "spring fever" and been finding trouble - I took her for a walk and a visit to the dog park on Wednesday....finally some peace!
Have a great weekend and fun sewing!
