The quilts and quilters are a real inspiration.
Thank you to all that inspire the rest of us.

Jody

I was invited by a very Dear friend of mine to attend this past Friday and Saturday in Des Moines, Ia., and am so happy that I went. The quality of the quilts, the work and design is truly a sight to see. These participant’s are truly artists in their own right, and I can only dream and work hard to be able to say that I one day belong in this category of quilters. Thank you for a beautiful experience. Jody Siebel

Hiroko Miyama’s quilts are amazing! She captures the child so well in both, and the dog’s expression is fabulous. What beautiful subjects to capture in fabric. Bravo!

Wow! They all are beautiful. Sure glad I am not a judge!

Andrea Krier

A plus for your presentations of the winners in digital format. It’s nice that you include a picture of the quilt maker.

I totally agree with having the pictures of the quilt makers. Wonderful to see them.

Gail M
