Isn't It Great?

Isn't it great when you go to a quilt show and find out that a friend has won a ribbon?

This is Ami Krenzel's quilt, Echoes of Spring. It was the second place winner in the category Small Innovative pieced and/or appliqu├ęd quilts.

Ami had blogged about it as she made it, so I recognized it immediately. Of course, it is even better in person. I love those organic improvisational curves and all that fabulous quilting.

Here's Ami's other quilt from the show, in the same category, Into the Woods.

Each day in June, I am sharing photos and observations from the Fiber Arts Fiesta that took place in Albuquerque May 21-23.

When I looked at may blog roll this morning I saw my quilt! It was really fun to see my quilts hanging in the show. I really enjoyed creating them from a set of ideas and watch them come to life.

The design is certainly wonderfully organic, but I especially like the beautiful quilting and the way that the same fabric used in different places is quilted with the same pattern.

The quilting...yum! It looks like Ami quilted a different design in each of the colors in the first quilt. Love the second one too. I can see the bits of forest through the trunks and branches of the trees. Thanks for sharing these. Very inspirational.
