Name of Maker: Sharon Engel
I saw this quilt on the old TQS site 5 years and contacted the quilter for the pattern. She indicated that the pattern was no longer being printed, but sold me her copy. I made this quilt with all the blocks and it just grew and grew. I love hand applique and this quilt took 4 years to applique, but when I was on the home stretch, got it finished very quickly.
She won Reserve Champion in our local county fair and Best in Show in the Colorado State Fair. She was at HMQS in May, 2015 and received a Teacher's Award. One issue with her is because she is so big she doesn't get into a lot of quilt shows.
I absolutely love this quilt and she will be living with me.
