Best of Show Full Size Quilt

Ilyse Moore won best of show at our recent exhibit in the viewer's choice awards (full-size quilt) with her applique Paradise in Kansas quilt, machine quilted by Frieda Smith.

Here's a more accurate view of the color when it was a top

She adapted a center from
Rose Kretsinger's Paradise Garden

And the border from another Kretsinger design
called a Kansas Quilt, with a border of parrots

She thanked everyone in the guild who'd supported her in the year it took to make the quilt, as she'd brought it in various stages and was grateful for advice and encouragement.

The label

Barbara Brackman made the first draft of the patterns copied from the vintage quilts and Ilyse modified the drawings.
