Nancy Sterett Martin’s wall quilt, Captain Kimo, was a hit at AQS QuiltWeek® – Paducah, KY 2015.
Nancy, who resides in Owensboro, Kentucky, took inspiration from the
www.captainkimo.com website, where she found the nature photographer’s heron photo and received approval for its use. The photo was taken in the Wakodahatchee Wetlands nature preserve park in Florida.
AQS Executive Show Director Bonnie Browning interviews Nancy about this winner of the Small Wall Quilts: Home Machine Quilted award sponsored by Koala Cabinets. In this video, Nancy gives tips for fabric preparation and painting. Captain Kimo was initially painted on white silk. The feathers look so real! You’ll hear the “how to” behind the quilt’s realistic bird feathers.
Nancy was a two-time winner in 2015! Along with Karen Sistek, the quilt Ricky and Lucy won the BERNINA of America, Inc., Best Home Machine Workmanship Award. See that interview HERE.
