If you mean Precious Water it is outstanding. I can't believe it is a quilt.

The Bernina Show is really nice too. This outfit was made by a lady who has a picture in one of our galleries. Her name is Priscilla Kibbee.

Those quilts are beyond amazing. The only thing that keeps me from getting completely discouraged looking at them is the hope, that at the start, those quilters had trouble matching intersecting seams, making flying geese fly straight, and choosing their colors, too!

(Thanks for the address to peek at the winners.)

Those quilts are absolutly amazing. I could spend hours looking at them. You're right about the winner though, I can't believe it's a quilt. It looks like its some kind of special effect created on a computer. Stunning. All of them.

You know, seeing that quilt almost makes me want to quit quilting. I don't even have the foggiest idea how someone could make a quilt that looks like that. It looks more like a painting and a whole lot less like a quilt. I wish I had seen it up close. I would love to know how they did it. The detail is amazing. Oh well, I'll stick to learning the basics and doing the best I can and I now know that I will not be submitting a quilt to next years show.
