The Grace Company Master Award For Traditional Artistry at Houston 2023, Creating Soul Boxes with Carrie Bloomston, Alex LIVE: Mystery Tie Quilt - Class 02, Mystery Fat Quarters Are Restocked, Memory Match Game, A Puzzle That Works Twofold

Welcome to Wednesday - September 20, 2023

Featured Quilt - The Grace Company Master Award For Traditional Artistry at Houston 2023

The quilts from the 2023 Houston International Quilt Festival keep coming, and today's award winner is from TQS guest Kathy K. Wylie. Her quilt, Beauty in the Broken, won The Grace Company Master Award For Traditional Artistry. Check out this quilt in the gallery and see the amazing cutout work done in the close-up details, with photos courtesy of Kathy herself.

On the inspiration for the quilt, and its title, Kathy had this to say: “In the same way that stars can only be seen at night, there is beauty that is only experienced in hardship. This quilt was inspired by those profound moments of love amid our suffering, laughter in our sorrow, hope in our despair. The beauty in the broken.”

Learn from Kathy right here at The Quilt Show by watching her in How to Do a Scalloped Binding with Kathy K Wylie | How to Make a Zippered Pouch with Valori Wells.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Pulling Double Duty

"Vintage Union / Two For The Money" by Linda Thielfoldt

Vintage Union / Two For The Money is Linda's first Blue Ribbon quilt. The name is a play on the quilt itself with the "Vintage Union" referencing the design and the "Two For The Money" part referring to the back of the quilt, which Linda says is her favorite part and considers it a whole other quilt unto itself... so you're getting two quilts for the price of one (unfortunately we do not have pictures of the back of the quilt). When she entered the quilt into Houston, one of the judge's comments was that Linda should consider taking a color theory course. The joke is on that judge though as the quilt from then on continued to win prizes, including First Place in the Traditional Custom category of the Machine Quilters Showcase in 2007.
