Today I would like to announce the winner of the Wallflowers Quilt Design Contest. Please give a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Cristina Tepsick.
The winning quilt is called "Small Town Girl" and it was inspired by Cristina's recent visit to her hometown.
"I miss small town life and wanted to create a beautiful quilt that I could see hanging on a clothes line back home. I love flowers, and wanted a flower block that had layers of petals. I chose an x for the center because I love the way the color gradually crawls out the center of a real flower and fades into the petals. I was pleased by the shapes the negative space created, but I think that's one of my favorite parts of quilting. Anyway, I appreciate the opportunity, and had so much fun designing this."
Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest! Wallflowers will be available in September so be sure to mark your calendars!!
