Wins at the WNC State Fair

What a weekend. I entered 4 quilts in the Western NC Fair. 3 won 1st place ribbons.

The pot holder was paper pieced using my own hand dyed fabrics, designed by Kim Noblin. The design was from I took the 12 inch block and changed it to a 8 inch finished quilt.

The Spring colored Bargello took a 1st for a table runner. It is created from commercial fabrics and comes from a Quilt University class Bargello Seasons with Ruth Blanchet.

The crowning glory is my landscape which took a 1st place and a Judge's Choice. It was done with my hand dyed cottons, organza, sheer material, Shiva oil paint sticks. This was created using one of my DH, Dan, photos taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I created a frame around it to create the illusion of looking out of a window of a log cabin. It was entered in the mixed media category. I learned to create landscapes from another Quilt University class called Miniture Landscapes with Susan Brittingham.
