Playing Favorites - 2016 Quilt Alliance Contest

The 10th annual Quilt Alliance contest theme is "Playing Favorites" and all quilters, regardless of their style (traditional, modern, art) or technique (longarm, hand quilting, applique, pieced...) are encouraged to enter a 16" x 16" quilt celebrating their favorite technique, style, pattern or whatever you most love about quilting. All concepts are fair game -- let your imagination run wild!  Read guidelines here and enter your quilt here.

What do I love most about quilting?  I love creating my own patterns and unique designs. Mixing traditional and contemporary techniques. I love a quilt that is an organized mess, with raw edges and ripped fabric.  I love crazy quilting with a mixture of fabrics, embroidery and embellishment.  I love beads.  I love applique.   I love playing with color. I have a career in historic preservation and am drawn to old house, dilapidated barns and historic architecture.
