Dear Maria & Rick,
I entered a quilt - Zen Dahlia - in the Narragansett Bay Quilters Association show this past weekend in North Kingstown RI.
It is based on Zentangle and quilting designs , many of which are very similar. The whole cloth quilt is 85" square and was hanging reversible, showing both sides. After being judged by a professional quilt judge I received a purple ribbon (98% quilting excellence) and Viewer's Choice Ribbon- this one means so much to me because the general public is telling me that they like the quilt.. I had so many wonderful comments on the complexity and originality of the quilting designs. Many thought that I had a computerized machine that did the work but I hand guided every stitch. Even the judge commented that this was a work of art.
I have attached a photo of just a portion of the outer corner of my quilt with a quarter placed for size comparison. I will be posting more photos of the quilt on my website very soon.
I am so looking forward to the teacher training seminar in May! Zentangle has allowed me to find many more quilting designs to add to my quilting repertoire and a whole new style of quilting!
Congratulations, Pat! And thank you, ". . . a whole new style of quilting!" How cool is that!
See you soon.
