2014 AQS Grand Rapids Quilt Show...Part Four...

 I really like the use of the black/white fabric...

This won first place in the "Wall Quilts Modern" group...

This won third place in the "Wall Quilts Modern" group...

My picture of the tag for the next quilt is too is #5-5010 and is called "Mid-Century Musing" by Zinia Lewis of Simi Valley, CA...

This won an honorable mention in the "Wall Quilts Modern" group...

Each panel was made by a different artist, but flow together nicely with unifying sky fabric and the wavy sidewalk element...

This won the "Best Home Machine Workmanship Award"...

This won the "Best Bed Quilt Award"...

This won the "Best Hand Workmanship Award"...

This won the "Best Longarm/Midarm Machine Workmanship Award"...

I am sorry that my picture for the "Best Modern Quilt Award" was simply can find it pictured here.

This won the "Best Walk Quilt Award"...

And finally..."Best of Show"...

I did not get pictures of all the contest quilts...I was only there one day this year, so I am sorry not to have more pictures for you or if yours was omitted.  

I will have one more post full of photos from a VERY amazing and special traveling exhibit...basically a one-woman show.  You will not believe her body of work!

In stitches,
Teresa   :o)
