The Quilt Alliance was wowed by this hand-quilted stunner, Elegance by Elsie Campbell, at this year's International Quilt Festival. It took her eight years of off-and-on work, while she finished writing three quilting books and making dozens of other quilts!
Scroll down after the quilt and enjoy Elsie in this Go Tell it at the Quilt Show! interview by the Quilt Alliance.

Whole cloth quilts have always been my favorite and I have completed several that were preprinted. My goal is to design my own whole cloth quilt. Congratulations to you, Elsie for designing and quilting such a beautiful piece. You are in inspiration!

I also fell in love with hand-quilted wholecloth quilts several years ago. This is also my goal.

Beautiful! I have a whole cloth quilted by my quilt group and I treasure it beyond all my others. It is hand quilted with stitches of love.

This is a true treasure. I wish I had the patience for hand quilting. Love my Statler Stitcher but I truly wish I could do this kind of handwork, as well. Brava!

I love that whole cloth quilts are coming back and are hand quilted. Not trying to denigrate machine quilting, by any means. Whole cloth, hand quilted quilts have always had a special place in my heart.
