IQF–Day 2 (Part 1)

On Friday, I was feeling better and set off the for convention center with the idea that I was going to make the most of the day

The first thing that I wanted to do was to look at all of the quilts that were in my category (Pieced – Large) and see who the winners were.  First place was won by Lynda Lynn with this magnificent quilt……IMG_6810

The quilting is pretty magnificent as well!!IMG_6814

Second place was made by Beth Nufer……

Third place went to Andrea Petrocelli for this quilt that had 7,924 Flying geese……IMG_6816

Here is a close up of the amazing piecing……

Honorable Mention was by Renne Ferre……riIMG_6824

I thoroughly enjoyed walking thru the “People, Portrait & Figures” entries.   This very simple quilt by Cindy Richard was one of my favorites……IMG_6846

Another favorite was a Judge’s Choice winner…..a wonderful portrait by Roxanne Nelson…..IMG_6857

I spoke at length with Jennifer Bowker, a quilter from Canberra, Australia who made this blue ribbon quilt based on a photo that she purchased the rights to.  It was taken during a 2013 massacre in Cairo…..IMG_6861

This quilt, made by Christina Bono, was in the machine quilting category and was super cute…..IMG_6881

I had the pleasure of witnessing a touching interchange between Alex Anderson and Sandra Navaro, a quilter from Spain who spoke very little English and was using her young son as her translator.    It was obvious that she was so moved by having a photo with Alex Anderson and she fought back tears as she told her thank you……IMG_6933

This quilt by Peter Hayward was voted as Viewer’s Choice.   I was interested that the shading was achieved by placing black net over certain areas of the quilt……

There are tons more to show, but I will save the rest for another post……

  1. Lovely quilts, again.I always enjoy seeing what Jenny Bowker is up to. She takes on interesting subjects. I used to follow her blog years ago but I don't think she does it anymore.
