Featured Quilt - First Prize Art Quilts - 2022 Birmingham Festival of Quilts

Milioner by Sylwia Ignatowska (sylaquiltartist) won First Prize - Art Quilts at the 2022 Birmingham Festival of Quilts. Sylwia says her beautiful quilt's inspiration was the fact, "I have never sewed a tondo before. I wanted to create such a tondo by just quilting it."

What is a tondo you say? A tondo is "a circular painting, relief carving, plaque, or mural design" The judges at the Festival of Quilts definitely picked up on this design, as they had this to say about the quilt,
"The very very successful combination of individually quilted kaleidoscope hexagons and beautifully embellished central panel has resulted in a stunning harmonious piece."
