First place in the Applique. WOW! is all I can say, I love applique and this is an amazing piece of art. Congratulations to Mary ArnoldSecond place, beautiful applique. Kathy Anderson did a beautiful job with this piece.

Third place, how fun is this. It's machine appliqued and the quilting is lovely. You couldn't help but smile every time you looked at this quilt. A real joy to see.

Here are the miniature winners.
Close up of this amazing piece. The checkerboard ended up being her challenge.

Innovative winners........
LOVE this one, very Nancy Crow/Gee's Bend

Judges choice........

The big winner, Helene Knott of Oregon City, OR. She also taught some classes and I took her Machine Quilting as Art class all day Saturday, it was amazing!
And the feature quilter was Kathy McNeil. Here are a few of her pieces. Her newest one is simply breath taking, but not picture taking yet. So although we got to see it, we were asked to no photograph it as it has not made the rounds of shows yet. If you have the opportunity to see her work, don't pass it up.

Sew many beautiful pieces
