Exciting day!!! Just found out that "Seasons" won 2nd Place: Innovative, Wall, Mixed at Road to California. The quilt belongs to Michele Byrum, of Salem,OR. We seem to be a great team for so many reasons. Michele gives me complete freedom to quilt as I please on her spectacular appliqued beauties, such a privilege for me. Her designs are gorgeous and so well done I can't help but be inspired. This quilt also traveled to AQS in Paducah, KY.
The judges comments were exciting: Quilting is beautifully done, evenly distributed, and, happily, not excessive. We had to laugh, so many quilts in the shows are excessively covered in stitching. They are exceptional but just not our style. Michele and I had to chuckle that we might start a new trend...NOT!
