More Quilt Show Eye Candy
Barb and Anita with the Serendipity (Raffle) Quilt for 2012. I know others helped with making this beauty, but don't have their names. This quilt was 4 Storm at Sea kits from John Flynn - Barb said they needed 4 to get enough of the right colors - (not sure what that meant). When I saw this quilt folded up, it was beautiful, but when it was on the hanging rack, the complicated design pattern became visible. This is a quilt that you want to step closer to, i.e., "it brings the viewer in." Barb, the math teacher, explained that they made it in 4 quadrants, one quadrant at a time, so they could assemble the design correctly. It's another stunning quilt, machine quilted by Anita (Prairie Creations) with straight lines, following what appears to be curves, but are not. I really want to win this one! I seem to remember they are batiks.
