Famous Friends

Several friends made quilts that were accepted into the Symposium Exhibition. I feel proud to know such an awesome group of talented ladies. Here are some of their quilts.

This was made by Shelia Udjur for the Web Challenge. It was a very involved challenge with different elements having to be used in each row.

and a close up of the skate rink. This row had to use a 1/2 inch bias strip of a certain length and Shelia was very clever and used the strip around the top of the rinks fence.

Donna Rowan's beautiful Triptych. I remember saying to Donna I thought it would be a winner at Symposium and I'm pleased to see I was right. (Yes it does happen-I'm right sometimes!)

Close up. Isn't he just so sweet? Makes me want a dog even though I'm more a cat person.

Sonya also won the Red Challenge with her Red Gerbera

Love the stitching on the hair, that's a lot of thread changes.
