A Tale of The Salem Witches Quilt Guild - Those Pesky Goblins! by Kathryn Bernstein, with embroidery by Cindy Brauntmann and quilting by Susan Corbett, won Most Humorous Quilt at Road to California 2020.

'My beloved quilt group, the YaYas, support me when I get crazy design ideas so this quilt reminds me of the YaYas and our witchy ways. I always imagine that goblins will magically finish my quilts while I snack and chat with my buds so I included them on this quilt and wrote a limerick for them on the label in hopes that they will visit my studio while I sleep! The YaYa motto magically appeared on the class board "Completion Trumps Perfection!"'

Wouldn't even be helpful to have benevolent stitching goblins ? As opposed to the malevolent goblins that seem to inhabit my computer. ;-)

The detail on this quilt is quite remarkable. The quilting which is superb, shows the cute goblins too. All round a very creative and finely detailed work. Well done.
