Marilyn Smith's quilt, 15 Warthogs, won not one, but two awards. It was selected as the Judge's Choice award by Cindy Seitz-Krug and also won Viewer's Choice award at the International Quilt Festival in Houston 2019. It was exhibited as part of the Alternative Techniques category and while the color and graphic impact catches your eye, you are drawn in by all the meticulous detail on each warthog. (See approximate size in the last picture.)

I love the impact from far away and then to see the details up close is just amazing. I loved it more and more each detail shot.

This is a total stunner. Love the big stitch, it adds a tactile depth to the quilt and the beading is over the top.

This quilt is so rich in color and shows so much individuality in each of the warthogs. I love it! I am so glad this quilt is a double winner.
