2008 Quilt Show / Large Pieced - 2nd Place
Karen Sim, "Corona"
This was a challenge quilt in the Kansas Capital Quilters Guild. We were to "challenge ourselves." I had seen a quilt like this on the cover of Quilts and Other Comforts - Judy's Fancy, late in the summer of 1997. It suddenly hit me as I looked at it again that I could figure out how to make it. Seven months later, this was the result. It contanis 114 different fabrics in the top, two in the backing, and another for the binding. The binding is the only fabric I bought specifically to make the quilt. The rest were already in my stash!
