This beautiful quilt of swans swimming on a lake of lilac by Joanne Baeth is an award-winner in our book as well. Feathers and Frost was created with 4 overlapped layers of background. Thousands of beads cover the trees and each feather on each bird was constructed one at a time.

Joanne's quilts are always so beautiful. She works so hard on these quilts. I was lucky enough to see the quilt in our local quilt store and talk to her. She is an amazing artist!
