AQS in ABQ - Large Home Machine Quilted Award Winners

This will be the first of many posts about the AQS show that came to Albuquerque for the first time, but not last, time ever. Now, on to the award winners!

This beauty titled Aunt MiMi's Flower Garden II by Elsie Campbell took third place in the large, home machine quilted category.

Special details include the detailed quilting, decorative stitches accenting the appliqué, and an irregular shaped outside edge.
 Solitary by Ronnie Griner took second in the same category. The sashing makes up an intricate secondary pattern. The piecing is so precise, and the appliqué is wonderfully executed. The bold colors paired with soothing blues make a complimentary combination.
