Go! Dazzled

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."

Really!?

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
including:
"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.

Wow, that's gorgeous!! And a St. Patty's Day thought for ya:

May you have:
A world of wishes at your command
God and his angels close at hand
Friends and family their love impart,
And Irish blessings in you heart.

It's an amazing quilt, it looks intricate but I bet if anyone can do it, that must be all about technique.

Gorgeous! And, it certainly doesn't look like a beginner quilt to me. :\

wow that doesn't look like any kind of beginner quilt to me :) the machine embroidery alone looks complicated. Such great use of diamond shapes in this quilt. This might have been a first time entry to a quilt show - but I sure bet it wasn't her first quilt!!
