We all know that Ricky loves ravens, and this beauty by Debra Crine would certainly make him smile. Inspired by Edgar Allen Poe, it's so real looking you can almost hear the whisper of "Nevermore".

"Nevermore" won an Honorable Mention in the Painted Surface category at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019.

Barbara used a striped fabric to create the large center star for Lone Star Garden. The appliqué designs were adapted from Pat Campbell's Jacobean Appliqué designs. The outer border is soft-edge pieced with a Jinny Beyer border stripe fabric. Barbara bought 15 yards of the border stripe over several trips to the store to be sure she had enough.

Watch Barbara in Show 2601.

Pole Dance was part of the Abstract Small Exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019.
