As promised ... pictures including close up's of the Best in Show.
Like "Silver lining" that I posted earlier, this quilt is just as amazing for it's color and piecework as "Silver" is for it's machine work.
Entered in the category of "Large Wall Quilts - home sewing machine" is "Paisley Peacock" by Pat Holly of Ann Arbor MI. This quilt measures 60 x 72 proving it doesn't have to be big to be Grand.
Note about this quilt. Look at the close up's carefully. This quilt is pieced entirely from solids, not a single print. Everywhere you see detail is applique or embroidered. Some of the smaller pieces are mere dots of fabric.
Border. Take a close look at the little peacocks. thos are entirely pieced.
