Dallas Quilt Celebration 2009

Here are my entries to the Dallas show. Below is my entry to the Oriental Expressions Challenge Block. It won third place.


This is my entry to the Show Chair's Theme - 3D. It's called "Leopard Frog, Rana Pipiens" and it won an honorable mention. This one is pretty big for me, 45 x 68". I loved quilting the stain background. It's hard to tell in this photo but the water refection on the lilly pads is done with shiva paint sticks. I'll work on getting better photos with detail shots after the show.


This one is called "The Beetles, Dynastes Hercules" and it won first place in the Ultimate Guild Challenge - Wild Kingdom. Yeah! It's also big, 45 x 60". I plan to make some smaller things next year.


Yesterday was a very good day.
