Best In Show...

Look at those sweet, bossy faces!
 It's called "Time and Seasons" and it was created by Jane Becker.
All the elements were hand appliqued' and then surface stitched
using ribbon embroidery and other fibers (floss, etc.)
"Time and Seasons" by Jan Becker
 I think I'll keep my commentary to a minimum.
I know you'll be as speechless as I was.
 A sweet-faced dog in the front yard and icicles on the edge of the roof!
 There are tiny, lazy daisy stitches combined to form them.
 Every block has this much detail!
 A round, stone barn with swans swimming in the pond.
 Oh, dear. I love these grazing holsteins! (The grass is always greener...)
 Jane stitched her flying Canada geese formation 
completely in silk ribbon and floss. Detail upon detail.
 Flowers in the farmyard and a little kitten in the foreground
create yet another beautiful block. I'm sure I'll see more things
each time I look at my photographs. My own version of "I Spy"!

Day Two of the Quilt Show today.
 We'll be drawing the winning ticket for the 
"American Treasures" quilt
this afternoon. I admit, I'm going to miss having it around. 
If you purchased a ticket or more, I would like to thank you
 personally, and wish you Good Luck!

To my mind, the beautiful quilts made in the US are some of the highest forms of both art and craft that the world has seen. Thank you for sharing this with those of us who live on the wrong continent to see these in person.
