    Winner traditional applique

    The Quilt Show has a picture on its web site of the Houston Internat'l QS winner in traditional applique. The quilt is, obviously, breath taking beautiful. However it is unusual in that it is appliqued flowers and the full blooms are small Dresden plates and the buds are partial Dresden plates. It is definitely worth taking a look.

    If some of you attended the show and took pictures, please post them for those of us who could not attend. Thank you.

    Your link goes directly to a pieced quilt with no dresdens.... do you know the name of the quilt you're talking about?

    When I click on the link it opens on the right place. Did you zoom in on the quilt so that it enlarges enough so that you can see the flowers are actually very small Dresden plates? I don't know why it didn't work for you.

    That was weird - the first time I clicked on your link, it took me to a pieced quilt that had lots of striped fabric in it. I closed that window and clicked the link again, and it took me to the same quilt with stripes. I wonder if the link was cached in my browser or something.

    I DID see the quilt you're talking about when I was in Houston - the element of that quilt that absolutely amazed me? Those absolutely perfect yellow circles. They are so perfectly round and poofy, they look like buttons!

    Sigh. I DID look closely. As I said earlier, her link originally went to a completely different quilt - THIS was the quilt I saw, and I clicked on her link TWICE.

    Obviously, the link is working correctly now. I sure wish I could just delete my first post in this thread!

    Interesting to note, from looking at that close up, that she combined both handquilting and machine quilting. Happy to know that someone else, besides me, does that. Beautiful work - would like to be sitting next to her when she did those circles! Amazing!

    Your close up looks much better then what I see on their website, even with the zoom in tool.
    Thanks for sharing it is beautiful!!!!!!!!!

    Tanya did post a link to it, on the first page of this thread.

    I'll post the other two pictures of it that I took.
