Featured Quilt - First Place Piecing and Viewer's Choice at Quiltcon 2022

Pride and Joy by Veruschka Zarate won First Place - Piecing at Quiltcon 2022 and is a self-portrait of Veruschka and her two little boys. It is made of 2,359 shapes and 20 different cotton solids, it is foundation paper-pieced and a tribute to her love for her boys. Not only did we love this quilt, but so did the people at Quiltcon, as it also won the Viewer's Choice Award.
