AQS Prize Winners

The prize winners at the Daytona Beach AQS quilt show were quite wonderful.  These are some of my favorites.

Claudia Pfeil’s Fern Rising won Best of Show and it was very well deserved.

The shadows added to the fern shapes made it look extremely 3D.  Plus, the use of sheer fabrics (for the spirals) and an abundance of crystals made this quilt literally sparkle.

A Passion for Purple, by Andrea Brokenshire had everyone stopping in their tracks.

It won the award for best workmanship on a home machine.  Appropriate, don’t you think?

Although I’m a machine quilter (or maybe because I’m a machine quilter,) I’m always impressed by dense hand quilting.  And this quilt, by Donna Douglas had it in spades.

It’s called Flourishing on the Vine and it won the award for Best Hand Workmanship.  I can’t begin to imagine how much time went into making this quilt.  It was stunning.

The next quilt, by Lois Podolny was a little awkward to photograph, but I think you can get the idea.

As you can see, she’s carefully cut and pieced symmetrical fabrics to piece these wonderful radiating kaleidoscope designs.

It’s called Magical Moments in Time.
