The Houston Quilt Show began with Awards Night. It is always exciting to see the quilts presented under the lights. The walls are black and the curtains rise as each quilt is awarded. Finally there was only one award left and Best of Show was received by Janet Stone. We will get you ultra close ups for Friday because Janet has been awarded "Master Quilter" status. Congratulations to Janet our artist from Show 1401.

The back is simply stunning, too. She has another full alphabet. This is definitely not my style of quilt, but it blew me away at Road to California this year. While I prefer more modern styles, this stunned me. I always deeply appreciate the skill that goes into making a quilt even if it isn't my style, and this is packed full of incredible skill.

Really pretty.
I like this quilt a lot.
I love applique so this really speaks to me. :)
And since I have done embroidery for decades it brings back memories of favorite samplers from the past.
Lovely quilt!

Every time I see a new quilt from Janet, I find myself smiling. They are so beautiful, the flowers, sheep, and lettering all have to be checked out carefully. And then the quilting, which is such a gorgeous addition to the design. Thank you Janet for sharing your work with us.

This quilt continues to knock my socks off! Janet, will you ever be offering this as a pattern or kit? I would be first in line to buy it! Congratulations on incredible workmanship!

This is such a pretty quilt and such beautiful workmanship!
Btw, the closeups are perfectly focused on my iPad. So maybe something else is causing problems for you, JT? Hope it gets resolved so you can enjoy the images of this beauty!
