Well, hello there, beautiful!

Bling by Katherine Jones

Congratulations to Katherine Jones of Australia (and a Tasmania Modern Quilt Guild Member ) for snagging top honors at QuiltCon East (Savannah)! Her princess-cut diamond-inspired quilt, Bling, simply sparkles, capturing in pieced fabric the beauty and depth of a well-cut diamond. And it wowed the judges, too, earning Katherine the Best of Show prize sponsored this year by Northcott.

You can learn more about Katherine’s quilt, including some judges’ responses, in the February edition of our e-newsletter, Stashed!, which hit the cyber-waves in the wee hours this morning.

    This is just an amazing piece! I love the use of the solids and the subtle tone changes that creates the illusion of a diamond.

    Congrats fellow Aussie, absolutely stunning work, must show it to my Mum, my parents celebrated their diamond anniversary yesterday & although I made them quilt for their Golden anniversary, I couldn’t dream of anything on this level of amazingness
