The space wasn't big enough to stand back and view this quilt. Orange was big this year.
Benedict Cumberbatch deserves a quilt this big.
I love this shade of blue. Kind of periwinkle.
One of my all time favorite quilts from an old time Marie Webster pattern.
ORANGE!!! Gorgeous compasses and flowers
I'm a sucker for irises
1000 Points from me for Cuteness. Love this quilt.
Another fabulous quilt. I want to make one of these.
I think she used Texture Magic to get a crinkly 3D effect on the centers.
Loads of little strips joined together with some fussy cut flowers at the bottom.
This was everybody's fave. The buildings were printed on fabric. The stone bridges were cut from stone fabric. Everything else appeared to be thread painted. The people were threadworked on a separate piece of cloth and then cut out and applied to the quilt. The horse tack was stitched leather that was applied. There is even a tiny metal horseshoe attached. The fur muffs and collars were needle punched to give them more depth. I wish I could have gotten some closeups, but there were people clustered around constantly. You can see more about this quilt and Nancy's many other award winning quilts on her website. She is one talented lady.
