Pandemonium, an amazing appliqué quilt by Susan Minchow, won First Place, Mixed Large, at Road to California 2020.

Quilted by Kris Vierra, Pandemonium is a based on a Kim McClean design.

Kim wrote about her pattern: "It's very, very busy! When I was designing this quilt, I had been watching a lot of TV - mainly the Tudors and Downton Abbey. In these series, there are a lot of scenes with beautiful stately homes and the garden within the estates. I've seen these places with the kitchen garden, the folly and beautiful fountains and rose arbours. I'd love to live in one of these places, but, they are horrendously costly, so, I'm quite happy to dream in this quilt!"

The design is marvelous! It's called an "over-all" design and the quilt is magnificent. The subject matter is cohesive and charming. Both applique and quilting are wonderful!
