My mother Georgia was just awarded the "Flawless Workmanship" award at the 36th annual Springville Museum of Art Quilt Show. Her beautiful patriotic red, white and blue quilt is a log cabin star variation and machine pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted with miles of rwb variegated thread. It is very large -- 100" square so I'm not kidding about the miles of thread. It has a piano key border with 1 inch strips and she quilted around each key. Sorry-- no photo yet, but it won't be hard to spot if you make it to the show.
I will update as soon as I get to see it in the show and snap a picture. If you are in the Salt Lake/Provo area this summer, make a point to go to the Springville Museum (just south of Provo) and see all the beautiful quilts on display there, the show runs until September 2nd, 2009. I have 2 small quilts in the show (a black and white and pink 4 block applique and a twins photo transfer log cabin). There are almost a 100 quilts on display.
