Featured Quilt - Best Hand Quilting Road to CA 2022

Lullabye in 3/4 Time by Barbara Clem is another multi-awarding winning quilt. This time it won Best Hand Quilting at Road to California 2022. Prior to that it won Second Place - Traditional at the Mancuso 2021 Virtual Spring Quilt Festival.

Artist's Statement: "I needed a project to carry along when I traveled with my husband. All the fabrics came from my stash and since time was of the essence, quickly assembled my motifs in a medallion style. I added the pale yellow to bring that center hung square to life and proceeded to add more of my curvy vines, flowers and leaves till I was happy. She is lightly embroidered... enhanced with beautiful hand quilting and light trapunto. She is a happy quilt."

We agree!
