Nebraska, the Good Life


The theme for our Quilt Show Challenge was "Nebraska, the Good Life." Barb K designed this exceptional beauty with photo transferred panels, of a young'un in the corn. It's not small, either. What a beauty! Yes, she received a First Place Ribbon for this one. It's even more striking in person.

Gorgeous! I have only done one portrait one of my trio in St. Louis and then handstitched all the way around the border. I love mine, but it pales in comparison to that. That is one BEAUTIFUL quilt. Thank you so much for sharing it!

Sewing with Nancy just did a series on this type of quilt. I think I could do the picture part but the frame would be lots of work for me. Beautiful.

Oh that quilt is wonderful!! What a lovely idea. It really reminds me of my childhood, standing amid the rows of high corn. It seemed like a secret world.

Elaine, was this quilt at the Oregon Trails Quilt Show at Gering, NE? If so, I saw it! I was visiting my sister in the area.
