The Quilt Show Puzzle: "A Summer Christmas" by Mariya Waters and Gina Perkes-Tidwell
Do a puzzle of Mariya Waters and Gina Perkes-Tidwell's quilt, A Summer Christmas.
A Summer Christmas by Mariya Waters and Gina Perkes-Tidwell won Best of Show at PIQF 30 in 2021. Mariya writes about the quilt, "This quilt has been an international collaboration. In Australia, Christmas time is in summer, and I wanted a quilt that was not stars and snowflakes, but celebrated our garden in full bloom. The flower is the Tudor rose, as I spent many years in the United Kingdom. I began the applique' in 2006 and finished in 2016. Gina began the quilting in 2016 and finished in 2019. Both of us had family issues along the way that extended the completion."
