Favorites from the AQS Quilt Expo

Beauty from Within by Renae Haddadin of Sandy, UT

I love the design of this quilt. It reminds me of stamped leather from a fancy cowboy boot. The light coloring in the lightest section was done with shadow embroidery, a technique similar to trapunto, where a stuffing, usually colored yarn, is showing through the top fabric from within the quilt. It was the winner of the Best Longarm Workmanship award.

Silverlight by Betty Busby of Albuquerque, NM

Quilter's Choice first place winner

Dae Geun (Great Piety) by Shin-hee Chin of McPherson, KS
This is a portrait done entirely in yo-yos. So impressive.

These bras were made for breast cancer awareness. The sock monkey bra is my favorite.

You can look at photos of all the award-winning quilts from this show at the American Quilter's Society website.
