Rhonda's Winning Quilt

Edit: Thanks to Folk-Artist, the pattern used in this quilt is by City Stitcher. The pattern is Patchwork Diamonds. This is a whole picture of a quilt I shared here back in April. It is one I quilted for Rhonda Adams from Virginia. I've quilted for Rhonda for several years and she does excellent work. I knew it was a quilt to be entered in a show and I received an e-mail from Rhonda last night that it won 2nd place this past weekend at the 16th Annual Southern Maryland Quilt & Needlework Show at Sotterly Plantation. This photo showing a closeup of the quilting was posted back in April but I'm posting it again for any new readers to see (and, I love it so I might just post it again one day!) I love doing this kind of quilting with all the feathers! Rhonda always gives me freedom to do whatever I think fits and that makes it even more fun. Congratulations and thanks, Rhonda! Judy L.

  • A beautiful quilt. THe colors are amazing. I love the quilting too. Exquisite! When you free motion quilted on a regular machine did you do the whole quilt at once or in pieces and then assemble it? I have not dared to free motion on a large quilt yet, finding it difficult enough on small pieces.

  • Beautiful quilting!

    I like the vine effect of the applique, and all the little squares that pick up the colors of the nine patches in the border... it's just great.

  • What a shock to see this gorgeous quilt, I have the pattern on my bulletin board and have admired it countless times. What a novel idea, Rhonda actually MADE it :-). I LOVE this pattern and your quilting is so beautiful.

  • The quilt is stunning and your quilting enhances it. I can't believe it only won second...it should have been Best of Show! Great job, Judy! Congratulations!

  • words fail me except to say "breathtakingly beautiful" If that's not art I don't know what is. The quilt is stunning but made even more so by your work. AWESOME!

  • Oh my goodness - I spent today at the QU quilt show in Northern Virginia and I was so surprised to see this very quilt on display. I recognized it right away! It is even better in person.
