One of my Favorite Quilts from Fiber Fiesta

Two blog posts on the same day from this occasional blogger?  Even I am a little surprised.

I wanted to post a few of my favorite quilts from the Fiber Arts Fiesta last weekend, beginning with this one–Echinacea by Nancy Steidle of Santa Fe.

Echinacea

I love the contrast between the flowers and pieced background.  The wonderful detail in the centers of the flowers is exquisite.

I love how the flowers and leaf designs are also quilted into the background–maybe because that's my plan for a flower quilt of mine–and how she added the beaded detail of the centers on the quilted blooms.

I thought that was the most memorable quilt in the show. The beading was just fantastic.

Wow. Amazing details in those coneflower centers with the beading, etc. It certainly is a winner.

Went to Fiber Arts Fiesta with Hilda and her daughter on Thursday - the center detail on that quilt was wonderful!
