Featured Quilt - Over 600 Feet of Custom Cording

Inherited Inspiration by Michelle Plourde was featured at Houston 2021 and comes with a personal, heart-warming story. "A childhood discovery of a dusty box in my grandmother's basement led me to the most captivating artwork I had ever seen. Between 1920-1950 my great-grandfather drew over 90 mandala-like drawings using a compass and brown paper bags. I knew these drawings would be source of inspiration for a quilt. The center of this quilt is based on one such drawing, it is coupled with Cherrywood fabrics, Swarovski crystals and over 600 feet of custom cording."

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Miniature Mandala Masterpiece
"Peony Mandala" by Kumiko Frydl

Peony Mandala is made using one of Kumiko's standout techniques, shadow trapunto. After making quilts using foundation paper piecing, she wanted to switch to quilts that showed off the quilting more, and thus her beautiful shadow trapunto styled quilts came into the picture.

See more of Kumiko's quilts in How to Do Shadow Trapunto and Micro Stippling with Kumiko Frydl | How to Enhance Quilting Stencils with Alex Anderson.
