    I enjoyed seeing all the “Quilt / Embroidery” entries.

    In 1984 my Mom and Sister made a full size quilt for our Silver Anniversary. They stitched the names of our 1959 wedding party with silver threads inside quilted hearts.
    Your contest reminded me of that gift. I still use it.
    Good luck to all contestants.
    My favorite was Noah’s Ark by joetulips. Thanks!

  11. Applique Pattern Conisseur says:

    My choice is Redwork By: Beatrice, France. I absolutely love the applique, the pattern, the stitchery…it just all comes together very nicely.

  12. ---"Love" says:

    True, there are many very nice quilts here, but I’ve seen Garden Party up close and personal, and it is delicate and beautifully quilted, and worthy of your vote!

  13. Stephanie Lenzo says:

    Love “the wish quilt” best of luck!

  14. I think anyone that can embroider should be rewarded. I couldn’t do as well as any here. But, the one that stood out for me was the Redwork quilt … it was sharp and balanced and padded in all the right places. It gave my eyes an interesting restful place to gaze.

    But to all … GREAT WORK!
