We arrived at MAQF on Thursday around 3:00pm and spent a couple of hours at the show before checking into the hotel.
Bottom left is Silk Road Sampler by Melissa Sobotka of Richardson, TX, which won Best of Show. If you follow the quilt shows, this also won at the Road to California show. The colors are gorgeous and it looks so real, like you could pull one of the pillows right off the shelf.
Bottom is also by Margaret Solomon Gunn. This is called Springtime in the Geisha's Garden and won 2nd place in the Traditional category.
Top right is Lura's Choice by our online friend Vicki Welsh (Field Trips in Fiber) of Montpelier, VA. We followed Vicki's blog posts about the making (and quilting) of this quilt.
Bottom left is Winter Fields by Cynthia L Vogt of Kennewick, WA. It won Best Use of Color, Innovative, as well as a Judge's Choice award.
Bottom right is an Honorable Mention in the Innovative category. It is Bursting at the Greens by Karlyn Bue Lohrenz of Billings, MT.
More to come over the next few days.
