Sponsored by: Bohin France

Title: Diamond Effervescence

Title: Fire Island Hosta in Silk Maker: Marlene Speed

Quilter: Marlene Speed

Design Basis: Brad & Judy Niemeyer - Quiltworx

I had been collecting dupioni silk for a while just waiting for the perfect pattern. When I saw the Fire Island Hosta Queen from Quiltworx I knew I had found it. The quilt is made entirely from silk, both front and back. There are 2 layers of batting, silk and wool.

3rd Place: Pieced Large Award

$500

Sponsored by: Fiberworks Inc.

Title: Joseph's Coat Maker: Megan Farkas

Quilter: Megan Farkas

Design Basis: Traditional block (half log cabin)

After making a quilt with many templates, I enjoyed simply pairing fabric strips and seeing the color interactions. All work by hand.

1st Place: Pieced Wall Award

$1,000

Title: A Taste of Tie

Maker: Inger C Blood Quilter: Inger C Blood

Design Basis: Log Cabin

After inheriting all of my father in laws ties, I designed a quilt based on the traditional log cabin. Dupioni silk was used as the background light color to resemble the shirt, dark to resemble the suit. The quilting was done to create a secondary log cabin design. Swarovski crystals were used to resemble the tie pin.

2nd Place: Pieced Wall Award

$750

Title: Magnetic Attraction Maker: Gail Stepanek

Quilter: Jan Hutchison

Design Basis: Maker's Original Design

Four paper pieced compass blocks, eliminated from a previous quilt project, found a new home in this wall hanging. Jan's original free hand quilting adds a second layer of interest.

3rd Place: Pieced Wall Award

$500

Title: Devil's Due

Maker: Ms. MJ Kinman Quilter: Ms. MJ Kinman

Design Basis: Maker's Original Design

I make the biggest diamonds in the world. But instead of working with the hardest substances on earth, I work with the softest - cloth. For the past 20 years, Iíve used fabric and paint to create larger-than-life

portraits of colored gemstones. My goal is to find a stoneís personality ñ the story of light and color ñ encased within. This work, part of my Bourbon Diamonds series, celebrates the importance of fire in the making of Kentucky bourbon.

1st Place: Miniature Award

$1,000

Sponsored by: Custom Creations

Title: Streak of Lightning Maker: Amy Pabst

Quilter: Amy Pabst Design Basis: Traditional

Miniature Category

This quilt was machine foundation pieced and machine quilted. It was inspired by a circa 1860s quilt. The Courthouse Steps blocks that form the border finish at 3/4" square. There are 4,330 pieces.

2nd Place: Miniature Award

$750

Sponsored by: Cozy Creative Center

Title: Wind Blown Roses Maker: Annis Clapp

Quilter: Annis Clapp

Design Basis: Based on Sue Garman's Ruffled Roses

I challenged myself to make this Sue Garman quilt in miniature using leftover fabric from a king size quilt. The center rose motif from EQ was the inspiration for the theme of the quilt. The piecing instructions and appliques were changed as needed to make the assembly possible and the basket blocks which would have required 1/4" half-square triangles were replaced with four patch posies.

 

3rd Place: Miniature Award
