Tucson is a favorite place to be. And, lucky me, that's where I am! The Tucson Quilters' Guild kindly invited me to be their guest speaker for their 35th annual Quilt Fiesta this weekend. I also have the honor of awarding a ribbon to any quilt in the show. It is so hard to make a choice!
Ribbon made by Lois Podolny.
The lucky winner receives this ribbon created by Lois Podolny (winner of 2 prizes at the recent Houston quilt show). She made "in the style of Laura Wasilowski" and did such a beautiful job I wish I could give it to myself!
Duncan's Garden Party by Karolyn "Nubin"Jensen.
After reviewing all the quilts in the Tucson Quilt Show, I decided to give the ribbon to this quilt by Karolyn "Nubin" Jensen. Inspired by a Sue Spargo class, Nubin designed her own flowers and birds and used her own hand-dyed wools, silks, and velvets to create the piece. Isn't it wonderful?
