Miniatures

I'm two thirds of the way through the month of sharing quilts from Fiber Arts Fiesta and I realize that I haven't yet shown any of the traditional miniatures.

This is the first place winner in the Miniature category, New York Beauty by Jan Lehman-Shaw.

The colors of these hand-dyed fabric say New Mexico to me and I love the hand-quilting on this tiny wonder.

The second place winner was a tiny sampler, Maureen, Carol and Cynthia's Quilting Journey by Cynthia Figueroa-McInteer.

Third place was won by a hand-quilted, whole cloth doll quilt, Winter Roses by Norma Koelm.

I especially liked the play of color and line in  the Judge's Choice winner, Star Brite by Linda Erickson.  I think this would be a fun design to supersize for a bed quilt.

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing your pictures of the show. I've really enjoyed them. There are lots of talented folks there, and I know you are one of them. Thanks for the inspiration.

You could really play with color on that last one. I like all the miniatures. The way the first place carried the piecing into the quilting design was very appealing.
