    $200,000. Quilt

    Thought you'd like to see what a $200,000. quilt looks like.

    So, contrary to what most husbands think, there can be value in taking a perfectly nice piece of fabric and cutting it up just to put it all back together again!

    All her work is just amazing. Really nice to speak with also.

    The minute I saw it, I said Lake Michigan. Can't fool a Michigoose. Beautiful scene and different panoramic setting, but $200,000?

    She deserves the $200,000 prize! I would love to see this quilt in person - it sounds like it is loaded with wonderful details.

    I would love to see this-each panel is 4 feet by 5 feet-20 feet in length altogether. Beautiful!

    It is a beautiful piece of work, I think that someone posted it right after the contest. This is the first time that a textile piece won, it is open to all sorts of art forms.

    There was one sold in Melbourne for about the same price - so people should not under-estimate the value of fibre art.

    Ann entered that quilt in "Art Prize," a huge "all over the town museum of art that lasts a couple of weeks every fall in Grand Rapids, MI. I live about an hr away and spent an entire day there and only saw about 1/4 of the entries! It's huge and just a wonderful way for all of us to enjoy art! Once I saw her piece I knew I was going to vote for that for the peoples choice. It is an incredible work...no picture can do it justice. And Ann Loveless is a very nice person who took the time to talk and answer questions for everyone came to see her piece.

    Inspiring!
    My pieces are getting bigger but I can't imagine working on a canvas 4'x5'. My new role model.

    It is beautiful but someone has a lot of money to pay that.

    Our guild was lucky to have her as a speaker and to get two workshops. She is a wonderful speaker with great slides and her techniques are easy and creative. I would pay most anything to get her to come again.
