I was encouraged to enter a small local quilt guild's show, since they needed entries. It was a nice show and I was very pleased to get two ribbons out of the three quilts I entered.
I got a First Place in the Wall Quilt division with Fiesta. It is made entirely out of my hand dyed fabrics and has extensive free motion machine quilting in many different designs. Click on each picture for a bigger view.
I got a Second Place in the Art Quilt division for Fern Dance II. Also hand-dyed fabrics, the ferns are free motion satin stitched around the edges and fern designs are free motion quilted in the background.
I didn't get anything for this one, Razzle Dazzle. I made it a few years ago for a song title challenge. It was adapted from a pattern in Quilter's Newsletter and was paper pieced. Lots of FM quilting and a little beading.
