While I was at the Arizona Quilter's Guild Show I looked for quilts that seemed different than all the rest.
Go! Dazzled by Judy Steenblik definitely fit the bill.
In real life, this quilt was even more stunning than pictures could capture.
Completed as a Block of The Month, original design by Sarah Veddler Designs, featuring Accuquilt Go! Cutter and Dies.
Embellished with machine embroidered applique.
Quilted by Judy Danz.
Judy wrote "Despite apparent complexity of this quilt, even a beginning quilter can successfully complete this beautiful project."
This beautiful quilt won the Laurene Sinema Award for Exemplary Workmanship.
I'll second that.
Sarah Veddler offers a lot of information on her web site about Go! Dazzled
"In order to guarantee success, even for someone completely new to Embroidered Applique, I devised an easy system for placement..."
I'm still trying to comprehend this could be a project for a newbie.
Judy's card did say First Time Entrant.
