Featured Quilt - Another Multiple Award-Winning Quilt
A Summer Christmas, by Mariya Waters and Gina Perkes-Tidwell, just won another award, First Place Large Quilts - Movable at AQS QuiltWeek Grand Rapids 2022. This quilt is no stranger to ribbons as it also won Best of Show at Pacific International Quilt Festival XXX in 2021.
Mariya writes, "A Summer Christmas was made to celebrate Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere where our flowers bloom brightly in the heat of our summer. It was an international collaboration between me in Melbourne, Australia and Gina, the quilter, in Arizona, USA. It has been hand and machine appliquéd equally across the surface using whole unit turned edge appliqué inspired by Victoriana and Greek design."
