I was very distracted by the need to get my house on the market when I was at the quilt show so didn't really give it the attention it deserved. Becuase of this I'm sure that I missed a number of gems. One thing that did catch my attention was the winning quilt from the AQS Challenge Competition. It is just so different yet is well constructed and thought out.
This piece is titled "10 together equals teamwork" by Alison Withers. The artists statement says
"In an ideal world a team can work together for the common good. Looking like skittles about to topple, 10 men in the boat support each other to safely navigate past obsticles both known and unknown. United they maintain balance. The helmsman is well equiped for the adventure but cannot pilot the voyouge without the foundation and care of the team. 10 together can reach the dream."
The detail in this quilt is quite unique.
