BEST OF SHOW
by SUGY KIM
Sugy said "The eye is the window of the human body through which it feels the beauty of the world and also the sorrow of the world. What a human eye sees is an illusion of what is real. It is the retina of the eye which converts the light into neural signals and sends these signals on to the brain for visual recognition and interpretation. My quilt is the perception of a beautiful life seeing through a colourful retina. Having a colourful retina will always see a positive, happy and bright side of human life.
Hand appliqué, hand and machine piecing, hand quilted. My own original design."
(forgive the black bar through the middle of my photo, that was the barrier prohibiting people from getting too close)
"Colourful Retina" was entered in the Innovative Quilts section,
for which it won First Place and then was awarded Best of Show.

RUNNER UP to BEST OF SHOW was
by ELIZABETH ALLEN
whom we all know as "Lizzy Allen"
"Cameo Rose" won First Place in the Mainly Appliqué Professional Section.
Longarm Quilting Award
Lizzy said "Vintage 1930's American Beauty Quilt pattern by Story Time Treasures. I chose to use Sharon Schamber's method of machine needleturn using water soluble appliqué paper. The appliqué fabric is Hoffman hand dye fabrics and peach homespun background. I used a khaki thread to tone down the peach and make it less peachy.
Machine appliqué. Machine quilted by myself on a track mounted, stitch regulated hand guided system."
