Imagining India was created by Pat Holly (one of the designers of the TQS 2013 BOM).  Pat says, "I continue to be inspired by antique textiles from around the world, particularly India.  This quilt was designed and made before I was lucky enough to visit India.  It is entirely machine appliqued and machine quilted."

Imagining India was created from silk and lame fabrics, purchased trims, silk, rayon, and polyester thread.  It is embellished with decorative machine stitches.

Pat's quilt won Second Place, Innovative Applique, at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2012 and Best Wall Quilt at AQS Paducah 2012.  You can learn more about it here.
