Melissa Sobotka doesn't disappoint, after all she is a Houston Best of Show Winner, and this quilt is no exception. Melissa went a bit off the beaten track (all the way to Australia) to create Gorgeous. You don't usually get a chance to look an emu in the eye.

Jayme created this beautiful quilt, her 4-Patch Boondoggle, using her Boondoggle ruler. You can learn how the ruler works in Show 2511.
