Born in Hawaii and raised in California, Rhonda Montgomery's 'happy place' is on the beach with her children, so she made a quilt of her children at the beach. She found it appropriate to share her story on the appliquéd surfboard and used "storm at sea" to create her ocean. The hibiscus border is her tribute to Hawaiian quilts.

Blessed by Rhonda Montgomery won Best Hand Workmanship Innovative at PIQF 2018

A beautiful quilt, it’s wonderful to see how appliqué and piecing are blended to create cherished memories. The poses of the children are delightful and the details bring out their personalilies! vg545
