Featured Quilt - Best Hand Workmanship Award at AQS QuiltWeek Grand Rapids 2023

Selvages À La Rococco by Cheryl See won the Best Hand Workmanship Award at AQS QuiltWeek Grand Rapids 2023, while also winning First Place in the Hand Quilted Quilts Category at the 2023 AQS QuiltWeek in Daytona Beach earlier this year. Cheryl, a past guest of The Quilt Show, takes her handwork to the max with this quilt, as evidenced by the awards it has won.

As for the inspiration for the quilt? AQS QuiltWeek had this to say about it: "This quilt has a repurposing theme! As the back of the quilt says, "Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without." Not only did Cheryl use many selvage edges saved from her fabrics, but she also added hidden embellishments to them. Can you find the bottle of Coke, the hot air balloon, the fly... and so many more?"

Want to know more about the quilt and see it up close? Watch the video of Bonnie Browning interviewing Cheryl about her work on the floor of AQS QuiltWeek Grand Rapids by clicking the Quilt Video tab once you're in the gallery.

And then, if you can't get enough of Cheryl, learn from her right here at The Quilt Show by watching her in How to Piece Hexagons and Diamonds with Cheryl L See.

Texas Tech: Sunflowers in the Waning Days of Summer

Still Bright & Blooming In Fabric

Despite the drought in West Texas, sunflowers continue to bloom for farmers and along the roadways as wildflowers.

Their beauty is enjoyed by many, as is evident by the sunflower motif that adorns many decorative items for the home.

There are currently three quilts with a sunflower motif in the museum of Texas Tech’s collections and this month's article is both a spotlight on them and the motif itself.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Making Mountains

"Orogeny" by Vicki Conley

Orogeny isn't based on any kind of National Park, but it is based on how a lot of rock formations that you see in the parks are built with layering and uplift. To create it, Vicki made strip sets like a traditional quilter would and then cut them, put some uplift from the bottom, cut it again, made more strip sets, and then built it like she envisioned the rock formations were built. The name is representative of the steps it took Vicki to create the quilt and how mountains are created themselves, as orogeny means "a process in which a section of the earth's crust is folded and deformed by lateral compression to form a mountain range."
