AQS Lancaster part 2

I really like to see how quilters and artists interpret things.

My first impression of the quilt on the left is that of a dart board.  But no, this is not a dart board, it’s Ezekiels Wheel.  It’s beautiful.  I love how Julia “robbed Peter to pay Paul” to create the wheel.   The colors are actually much clearer.

Meet me at Giverney was pieced & quilted by Margaret Solomon Gunn.  I was on the hunt for the quilt that won First Place in it’s category and found this one first.  It took a little while longer to find Rainbow Nouveau to get a photo of that.

Margaret has mad quilterly skills and Rainbow Nouveau  just rocks and the Blue Ribbon is well deserved.

Donna is a friend, coworker and student.   I’ve been privileged to see this quilt  progress over the last year or so.  I’m in awe of Donna’s artistry.  Donna also teaches at Hartsdale.   I can hardly wait to see what Donna’s creative mine comes up with next.

Speaking of Hartsdale, there’s a small opening of time to sign up for Let Your Foot Loose be Fancy & Free on Friday April 5th.  I love teaching this class and working with quilters on developing skill.

Happy quilting!
