Turtle Bay by Claudia Pfeil of Krefeld, Germany was the winner of 3rd place, Large Wall Quilts, Pictorial at AQS QuiltWeek Paducah 2013.  It was also the winner of the Handi QuilterExcellence in Longarm Quilting award, at Road to California, 2013.  Turtle Bay is 79" x 93" and was completed in 2012.  It is an original creation from Claudia.

Artist Statement: To capture the beauty of the sea I have combined silk and gauze fabrics .The shells and star fishes are made from silks with hand painted designs and are machine appliquéd. The sea turtles are made from hand-dyed and printed fabric, and are hand appliquéd. The net and the gauze gives a mystical effect, a translucent look. The quilt’s border – freehand and freestyle appliquéd - the symmetrical design reminds you of the turtle’s shell.

Jackie Got Into Aunt Millie's Garden was Jackie Aguilar's first attempt at needleturn applique, yes, her first attempt. She writes,

"Never having done any needleturn appliqué before, at the end of the first block I wondered what I had gotten myself into. Focusing on one piece at a time, this quilt was a lesson in patience and fortitude. Several stressful events occurred while I was working on this quilt and I found that the appliqué was a relaxing escape. Three years and countless hours later, I had it done."

Design Source: Aunt Millie's Garden from Piece O'Cake Designs.

The quilt is needleturn appliquéd, machine pieced, trapuntoed, embellished, and quilted on a domestic machine.  

It is a multiple award-winning quilt, including Bed Quilts: 1st Entry in an AQS Paducah Contest 3rd Place ribbon at AQS QuiltWeek Paducah 2013.
