Have you been wondering when I was going to get around to sharing the big winner from Fiber Arts Fiesta? Here is the Best of Show winner, Little Slice of Heaven on Earth, by Susan Bowman.
This is another really small quilt, although it is in the medium art quilt category, I remember it as being smaller than some of the "small" art quilts, which were approximately the same size as the traditional miniatures. I'm sure there's a historic reason for the inconsistent size labels (and I figure if I blog about it, someone will tell me what it is . . . )
This quilt was filled with 3-dimensional details and interesting materials. The artist's description from the program simply says, "Pieced, appliquéd, embellished, painted."
Updated to add this link to the guidelines after reading the first comment. If you look at the measurements given, a "miniature" can actually be larger (up to 50 inches around) than a small art quilt (which is less than 40 inches). I suspect this quilt was right at the edge of the small/medium Art quilt border which put it in the same size range as the miniatures. There are other criteria besides size for each of the categories, but I still find the inconsistencies distracting.
