Still Impressing the Judges
Colossal Caladiums was recently awarded a 1st place prize at the Lowell Quilt Festival in Lowell, Massachusetts. This quilt has earned a number of prizes and it remains one of my favs. Below is a detail of the stitching and machine quilting.
The veins are all appliqued onto the quilt using a satin stitch. Also the veins are outlined in many cases, using metallic thread.
The photo, however, does not do justice to the quilt. Try as I might I have been unable to get a really good shot of this quilt. I do believe a new camera is in my future.
Here's the detail of the quilt.
