Hi everyone. Wow, has the time gotten away from me and my blogging habit. You should know that I’ve been really busy quilting and creating in my studio. I thought that a good place to begin to catch up would be with my Crown Royal Quilt.
I finished this quilt last year in October, but kept it under wraps for the most part. It has been shown at the Yuma County Colorado Fair (of course) where it was awarded “Best Use of Color” and at the neighboring Phillips County Fair in Colorado as well.
On a larger stage… it was exhibited at the Machine Quilters Showcase in Cedar Rapids, Iowa earlier this spring, and I won a faculty ribbon.
Today, my quilt returned from display in Chicago at MQX. I didn’t win a ribbon, but it’s a great honor to be a finalist, and have your work included in their show.
The quilt features an original design of 84 Crown Royal bag embroideries, carefully cut and sewn into the blocks and borders.
This was truly a solo work, as I designed, pieced, quilted, and bound this beautiful quilt. I hope you enjoy seeing it too!
I’ll keep it short and sweet today, as I’m busy with a customer quilt on the longarm, and I should be working. Thanks for stopping by and checking me out.
