Award Winning Quilt


















This beautiful quilt just won Best of Show here at the International Quilt Festival. The quilt is inspired by the 1908 German children's book, Wurzelkinder or The Root Children.

Judges for the International Quilt Association gave Sieglinde Schoen Smith of Carlisle, Pa., the Best of Show Award and $10,000 during the world's biggest and most prestigious quilting contest.

Susan, did you see how this was only her third quilt and actually made to help her deal with her son's death. Amazing.
