    That is gorgeous, but I can't even begin to imagine how someone made that! I know . . . my instructor keeps telling me, one block at a time . . . but even so . . . WOW!

    That is amazing. It doesn't show any ribbons. I would have thought it would have won a lot. Great design and use of color as well as quilting.

    I know what you mean about over quilting but to me this one is not over quilted--it still looks soft and supple. This is a great quilt. I wonder how long it took them to do it?

    It is beautiful! I watched the Patsy Thompson video on using the sissix(sp) machine and she cut some vine florishes with fusible on them. I wonder if that's what she used to get her perfect pieces?

    YES, I agree, over quilted. Takes away from all that beautiful applique.

    That is a beautiful work of art....I, too, tend to like a less quilting look, but seems for shows everything is quilted quite heavily....
