Featured Quilt - Marie White Masterpiece Award at Road to California 2023

If you had bet that Janet Stone was going to win another award this year, odds are you probably would have won because, guess what, she did it again! That's right, Janet's quilt, An Angel Watching Over Ewe, took home the Marie White Masterpiece Award at Road to California 2023. This quilt won the BERNINA 1st Runner-Up Best Sewing Machine Workmanship Award at PIQF XXX in 2021.

Here's what Janet has to say about her award-winning quilt, "Inspired by antique Frakturs, the name of the background alphabet fabric in the center is "Lexington", which is where my mom was born, Lexington, Missouri. The entire quilt was designed around that fabric, and the alphabet, of course. This quilt is dedicated to her, and the thought of her watching over me."

Take a look at this beautiful quilt and our brand new set of photos of it from the floor of Road to California. Once you see it, we know "ewe-ll" love it!

Learn from Janet right here at the quilt show, where she made our 2014 BOM that was also sheep inspired, by watching her in Block of the Month Quilt 2014 A-Z for Ewe and Me! by Janet Stone.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Three Across Is A Win!

"Tic-Tac-OH!" by Maria Shell

Tic-Tac-OH! is from Maria's circle and curve sampler class. Early on when she first began teaching on the road, Maria was asked by a guild for her to teach this class but that they'd like a sample. Since she didn't have a sample for the class, she saw this as her opportunity to make one. Tic-Tac-OH! as that sampler, and it features her braided curves, log cabin circles, and what she calls squaring the circle, which turns the circles into blocks.
