While there were many amazing quilts at the show, there was one in particular that got lots of attention.
Because the photo is so bad...here's what it says: Group Quilt, Ben Hollingsworth, The Wannabees. This quilt is a collaborative effort by the Wannabees, a CES bee. These seven quilters each chose a room in a 1930's era house, and made it a home, with machine and hand applique, thread art, beading and other embellishment. Each artisit hand or machine quilted his/her own block before the quilt was joined and bound. This quilt will be donated to theSotrybook Quilts Project after the show.
The 3D embellishments are wonderful. The stacks of fabric really sit on a shelf and the wall art really hangs off the quilt. The curtains and towels are all 3D as well. The details are endless!
What a wonderful and fun quilt!
