Spring Is in the Air by Noriko Nozawa was created using a number of different techniques including cross-stitch and a 'lace-like' embroidery on the border that almost makes it look like a delicate handkerchief. Take a look at all the details. There are close-ups galore.

Spring Is in the Air won First Place, Alternative Techniques, sponsored by Madeira Thread, at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019.
