Susan Shie's work was what I saw just as I entered the conference center floor.
BEST OF SHOW....truly an amazing piece of work/art.
When asked if she had planned all the flowers in advance Deborah said no she had not. The vines were laid first and then she added flowers as she felt the needed to be placed. I found it quite interesting that she said she had most all of the flowers on and it was dull....the quilt lacked something. Then she added the purple flowers (you'll see them splashed about the quilt if you look) that one color brought the entire piece together. Isn't that amazing?
The front is all done by hand including the quilting....and check out the back...
it was painted...isn't it beautiful?
