We’ve made it to Day 4, the final day of the winner announcements of the Tiny Quilt Challenge sponsored by American Made Brand. We hope you’ve enjoyed viewing the winning quilts and talented creators who impressed us with their amazing breadth of talent and skills!! For today’s post, we’re going to honor the winners of the Applique Division.
3rd Place Winner: Cotton Crop Circles by Linda Hungerford
Inspired by other-worldly visitors? An improvisation-pieced background in various neutral tones presents itself as the perfect backdrop to colorful hand-appliqued circles in various sizes. Hand-quilting completes this out of this world design!
2nd Place Winner: Quilting in the Country by Naida Koraly
Inspired by a favorite quilt shop in Montana, Naida challenged herself to scale down her typical oversized quilting works of art to tiny size. Here’s her interpretation of the quilt shop hosting a quilt show, displaying quilts on the exterior of the building, set in the idyllic mountain countryside! Raw-edge applique and free-motion quilting turn this masterpiece into a tiny quilt work of art!
1st Place Winner: Heaven’s Kiss by Judy Faulkner
Looks are deceiving in the case of this tiny quilt design. What appears to be a simple, graphic interpretation of a snowflake is sew much more when peering further into this piece of art. Inspired by the beauty of nature, Judy took to folded paper and scissors to create her very own Snowflake design. Embellished with curlicues, this gorgeous design is hand-appliqued and complimented by some very detailed, intricate quilting using rayon embroidery thread.
Bravo! Bravo! This concludes the winner announcements of the Tiny Quilt Challenge! Congratulations on your fabulous design work and quilting skills!! See you at the Road to California show in January!
