All the quilts in the Traditional Appliqué category of Quilts: A World of Beauty were just too beautiful for words. This is the First place quilt, Persephone Smiles, made by Margarete Heinisch, West Hills, California.
Here's the second place winner, Scottish Dance, made by Linda Steele, Park Orchards, Victoria, Canada.
The Schimmelbusch Family Quilt, made by Jaimie Davis, Tigard, Oregon, was one of several truly wonderful Baltimore album quilts in this category.
