Holiday Spirit was a guild challenge for Bethanne Nemesh where she had to feature her birthday which is December 30th. The muse represents December and there are 30 pine cones to represent the date. Made in the early 2000s, it's a bit different from what we see her doing today.

Big things are happening for you at TheQuiltShow.com. We are working on huge changes based on your requests and comments (more info coming soon). In doing that, we have been looking through our files and found these pictures from the very 1st Taping (10 years ago) of The Quilt Show. Our tapings started in Ricky's Gallery in La Veta.

Fun! They have't changed a bit, right? (Be kind.)

This quilt by Ayako Takaku was a joy to stand in front of at AQS QuiltWeek Spring Paducah 2017. It is another quilt that would have won an award at any other gathering, but there were so many great quilts that it didn't win. Wind Garden is 78" x 78" and is Hand Quilted, Hand Emboidered, and Hand Appliquéd. The appliqué is fantastic and the quilting mixed with leaves and vines is beautiful. We loved the small bird at the bird house. See below.

We've been working around the clock to find a solution to the iPad problem and we think we've found one, but we want you to give it a try.
 
Star Members, if you had a problem with your iPad Pro when watching a show, please go to Show 2107 and see if it now works for you. We've changed the format of the captioning file to be more compatible with the Vimeo software. If we determine that there are no more problems, we will convert the other captioning files as well.
 
Good luck, and let us know in the comments if this fix works for you.

"Gilding the Arbor" is another multiple award-winning quilt by Bethanne Nemesh. She writes,

"This silk dupioni quilt is an original design inspired by my love of wholecloth quilting, Asian silk embroidery and antique botanical prints. All the flora and fauna was free drawn on the quilt with chalk and refined with wash out pen before quilting. The design elements can be recognized in my garden photography, as well as images from gardening catalogues and Dover design books."
