Ricky and Lucy: Prize Winning Quilt!


At the 2015 AQS QuiltWeek event in Paducah, the BERNINA of America, Inc., Best Home Machine Workmanship Award winners were Nancy Sterett Martin and Karen Sistek. After Karen painted the birds on silk, Nancy quilted this award-winner. Watch the video below to learn about the painting, steaming, and quilting process! Nancy built a steamer in her back yard. The neighbors wonder what she’s cooking!

Wonderful to see how creative one can be without the help of a computer design. I’m so impressed – and Nancy’s work is beautiful!!

What a wonderful tribute to Ricky and Lucy. Great work guys!!
