Featured Quilt - First Place Improvisation at Quiltcon 2022

They say a broken clock is right at least twice a day, but this one is right (and better) in so many more ways. Annie Hudnut's quilt, Broken Clock, won First Place in the Improvisation category at Quiltcon 2022. Annie says, "Broken Clock is one of my all time favorite quilts. I was experimenting with "steampunk" inspired elements. Made during the early days of the pandemic, there was a Kona Pepper shortage so I combined the pepper that I had with dark black. I loved the effect. This was a challenging quilt to engineer because I have a hard time wrapping my brain around working on the diagonal."
