The Quilt Show Puzzle: Gracefully Flying to Places Anew
"Observe This Brilliant Moment" by Lisa Thorpe

Based on a photo of a crane she took while paddle boarding, Observe This Brilliant Moment is a story quilt about Lisa soaking in the day and arriving in a new place she didn't know anything about, it this case Arkansas. The title is reflected in the quilting as well, with "Observe This Brilliant Moment" stitched in the background over and over like a mantra for Lisa's new experience.
