The entries in this year African Folklore Embroidery $500 Challenge, were spectacular.
Congratulations to first place winner, Roberta Peterson from Woodland,
Washington. Roberta attended an African
folklore Embroidery class that I taught at Monica’s quilt and bead shop in Palm
Springs and she was hooked. She embroidered nine different kits and them
compiled them into a magnificent quilt.
I first met
second place winner, Carol Cunningham- hutte at a workshop I gave to the
Mountain View EGA Chapter. She beautifully embroidered the paisley flower and
poppy design and stitched a handbag with a completed design on each side.
Third place winner, Catherine Redford is from Naperville, Illinois.
I first met Catherine at Road to California and then again in a class I taught
in Illinois. Her sea life quilt consisting of the coral, shell and under the
sea design is colorful and beautiful. Thank you to all who submitted entries;
