What an amazing quilt! Judith Phelps’ ingenious wall quilt, THE VALUE OF GEARS, was named the Moda Fabrics’ Best Wall Quilt at AQS Quilt Week®–Paducah, Kentucky 2014.
The quilt is an incredible thread-painting; each block is covered in fine details that could only be accomplished in thread. Judith used 16 colors of black, white, and gray in the reversible design. She finished it in just a few weeks as part of a local group challenge.
Judith, who is from Battle Ground, Washington, was inspired by the graphic novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick.
