Congratulations to Marilyn Badger of St. George, UT and her quilt, Midnight in Morocco (77" x 77"), winner of the 2020 Best of Show Award at the Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF).

From MANCUSO:

"An original Claudia Clark Myers design, this quilt was such fun to make because of all the different techniques involved. Embellishing was even more fun with hundreds of little crocheted and beaded circles added, as well as beads, crystals and hand embroidery. The dimensional edge was the finishing touch."

  • Machine Pieced
  • Machine Appliquéd
  • Longarm Machine Quilted
  • Original Design: Yes

TQS continues its feature of quilts exhibited in 2020 at QuiltCon as part of The Quilts of Victoria Findlay Wolfe exhibit. The exhibit is described as:

"Purposeful play is a deliberate free-form practice with one goal in mind: to ultimately improve the outcome of the finished product while capturing a thought, emotion, or technique. Always fascinated by color, pattern, and quilters who came before us, Victoria Findlay Wolfe found her life's true joy in exploring her grandmother's quiltmaking as a starting point.

Her diverse and exciting body of work stirs quilters worldwide to dig deeper, take risks, and experiment with fabric. This retrospective exhibit features a selection of Findlay Wolfe's inspiring quilts and the stories behind them."

Please enjoy Victoria's fourth quilt from the exhibition.
