I was away for my guild's (Northern Star Quilters' Guild) big quilt show this past weekend. I was so sorry to have to miss it for only the second time in all the years that I have been a member. I had a very good excuse because I was at the SAQA (Studio Art Quilter's Associates) in Alexandria, VA. I will be posting about that in a day or two, but today I will show you how the three quilts that I entered into the show fared.
The first one, Transformation, was pieced using my very bright hand-dyed fabrics, then heavily free-motion quilted, then painted over with latex wall paint. It won an Honorable Mention in the Special Techniques Category.
My Radically Red quilt made entirely out of Dupioni silk, free-motin quilted, tucked and pleated and heavily hand French knotted won a Second Place in Special Techniques.
This quilt, Fractured II, was a surprise win for me. I wasn't there for that segment of the judging, so I didn't think it won anything. I was very happy with my Second Place in the Small Art Quilts category.
If you'd like to see more of the show, go to Cindy Green's blog. She wrote a very nice review and has more photos.
