Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

Quilt Con- 2023!!!

This past week, I had the pleasure of spending two days at …..

When you entered the room, the excitement and anticipation was palpable!!!

The first quilts that you saw were the BIG award winners, so here they are!!!

The Best of Show was….

“Bullseye” by Barbara Strick

She started with the traditional Drunkards Path pattern and played with color to make the circles “shimmer, shake and roll”!!!

The MQG Award of Excellence went to…..

She said that the quilt was based on a traditional “Courthouse Steps” pattern but added the improvisational sawtooth design in each of the “steps”!

Best Machine Quilting (frameless) was this piece…..

“Commotion” by Claire Victor

They hung these award quilts so that both sides could be seen and that was a definite plus with this one. Just look at this gorgeous quilting…..

Best Machine Quilting on a frame machine (long-arm) was…..

“Almond Country Beauty” by Rana Heredia and quilted by Tiffany Barcus

Have a look at the quilting…..

Fitting with the “Modern” aesthetic, much of the quilting on display were simple straight lines so it was fun to see something with a little more pizzaz!!!

As you can imagine, I took LOTS of photos and will be working thru my favorite categories in the next week.

I hope you will join me on the journey!!!

Until tomorrow……
