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.
It'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.
