It's beautiful !, in a weird psychedelic sort of way. ;-)

I saw this quilt at the Festival of Quilts here in Birmingham , UK. Lovely in the photo but fabulous in real life

I was lucky enough to see this gorgeous quilt at Road to California. It is absolutely stunning. I could make one, too, if only I had her incredible talent and vision. Alas, I don't and never will, so I will be satisfied to feast my eyes on it.

This quilt is absolutely stunning. I was able to see it IRL at the taping of the quilt show. There really are no words to describe just how beautiful it is

Wow, that is beautiful! I love the back and the work...oh myyyy! So if this was the 1st runner up, what does the winners look like? I can't imagine anything better.

Seeing the back so you can see all the diverse quilting on that piece is almost as beautiful as the front.

Beautiful piece of abstract art!
Enough black to make the other colors stand out, but not so much as to take over.
