Another of those quilts

Today's quilt from the Fiber Arts Fiesta is another of those quilts that I had seen and admired online and was happy to see alive and in person.

This is Afton Warrick's quilt, XLV.  It was the winner last year in Quilter's Newsletter's contest to create a 45-inch square quilt that celebrates their 45th anniversary.

Afton blogged about her quilt (and her win) here.  I loved the quilt then and in person at the show ... and was a little surprised there was no ribbon hanging on it.

XLV by Afton Warrick - detailIt's an example of those quilts that compete well at one show (or competition) and go ignored at others and a reminder of the subjective nature of quilt judging.

Recently on her blog, Afton shared the Fiber Arts Fiesta judge's comments for all three quilts she had in the show.  If you're curious, you'll find that post on her blog, Quilting Mod, here.

What a beautiful quilt! I see why you liked it and am surprised it didn't get a ribbon. Thanks for sharing!

I love medallion quilts and this is an exceptional one. I'd have given it a ribbon. Thanks for sharing it, Sophie.

The quilt is so interesting, a wonderful combination of what I think of as modern and traditional. Thank you for sharing links to her blog.
