Featured Quilt - Best Machine Quilting Frame at Road to California 2023

Into The Sunshine by Patricia Hechler and Joyce Hite has won another big award in less than a year. After taking home First Place - Wall Quilts: Movable Machine Quilted at AQS Quiltweek 2022 in Paducah, it has just won Best Machine Quilting Frame at Road to California 2023.

Patricia had this to say when it came to working with her partner on this quilt. "Joyce Hite and I work together, giving each other space to make our own design decisions on each quilt we do. For the longarming, I chose a variety of threads, including the addition of metallic and holographic threads to help highlight the applique. The border was a great area to introduce various thread colors, helping to create a tapestry look to the solid fabric color."

With plenty of new photos, come see why this quilt has already taken home two machine quilting awards (and doesn't show any signs of stopping).

Now, she is all about going with the flow with her braided curve quilts. See how Maria transitioned from this rigid style to the free-flowing fun she is having now.
