My customer wrote to me, “Congratulations! Please note the blue ribbon - first place in mid pieced category. Excellent quilting design & technique. Lauren Kingsland, Judge. She teaches quilting and the History and Handling of Gees Bend Quilts for the Smithsonian.”
This wallhanging was designed, pieced, appliquéd, and quilted by me, Hannelore. I think it took about a year to pull it all together. A fun piece that won 1st place in it’s category.
This little wallhanging was so much fun to create. It started out as a class at a local quilt shop on quilting small faces. Well, my creative bug took over and I added the feathers, bling, tablecloth, and of course the wine. Because, you know, “Wine is Fine”. :-)
This beautiful quilt is a Bonnie Hunter design called Turkey Trot. It’s queen size with thousands of pieces, all scrappy. I pieced this quilt before I had even thought about long arming myself. So this quilt was quilted by a friend.
