AMB Tiny Quilt Challenge Winners: Pieced Division


We are pleased to announce the winners of the Tiny Quilt Challenge sponsored by American Made Brand.  A BIG THANKS to all the talented quilters that entered this contest!!  There were a total of 228 quilts registered by 158 quilters competing in the following categories:

Pieced Division

Junior Quilter Division

Quilting Division

Applique Division

Three winners were selected for each category and one winner was selected out of all these winners to be awarded the Grand Prize, making the total number of 13 prizes awarded during the Tiny Quilt Challenge.

Participants registered quilts that were no larger than 15″ x 15″ using the beautiful fabrics from the American Made Brand solids fabric collection by Clothworks.  Entrants who submitted quilts in the challenge originated from 31 states in the USA, as well as 2 Canadian Provinces!  For the next few days, we’re going to honor the winners in each of the 4 categories by highlighting the winning quilts in a blog post for each division.  All winning quilt submissions from the Tiny Quilt Challenge will be part of the 40 total quilts shown at the Tiny Quilt Exhibition debuting in January 2016 at the Road to California Quilt Show.  We’re excited to send the Grand Prize winner of the Tiny Quilt Challenge to sunny, warm California to see their winning quilt exhibited in this quilt show!!

Without further ado, let’s honor our Pieced Division Winners in the Tiny Quilt Challenge.  Pieced to perfection, it’s mind-boggling to see the amount of work and technique that was involved in creating quilts in such a small format!

3rd Place Winner:  Check Mark by Beth Shutty

A graphic mini-Bargello style quilt, designed and drafted by Beth to mimic a check mark.  Quilting highlights the movement of this intriguing design!

2nd Place Winner:  Blue Balance by Jenny Wagner

Tiny log cabin blocks inspired by the balance of color found in nature.  Foundation piecing, pieced  by machine, complimented by hand quilting create an exquisite down-to-earth design!

2nd Place Pieced Division

1st Place Winner:  Star of Bethlehem by Julie LaDuke

Miniature-scale replica, masterminded by Julie, inspired by the color and design of a lone star quilt found in a Better Homes & Gardens Patchwork Quilting book from 1977.  Breath-taking design complete with 32 paper-pieced star wedges and Y-seams!
