Quilt Story:  Pattern by Shelly Pagliai — “Hazel’s Diary was the last quilt pattern published by the KC Star.  The applique is needle turn.  Hand quilting was done in a hoop quilting frame.”

2nd Place — “Home Sweet Home” by Roberta Foth, Kansas Capital Quilters Guild
Quilt Story:  Laundry Basket Designs pattern — “This was a BOM at Stitching Traditions.  Since I love hand applique I couldn’t pass this one up.  It uses all Edyta Sitar fabrics.”

3rd Place – “Hearts and Flowers” by Miriam Reed, Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City
Quilt Story:  Pattern is by Kathy Delaney – “Enjoying applique – it was fun to learn some new techniques I had never done before.”

Small Quilts:

1st Place – “Life Began in a Garden” by Lois Bozarth, Blue Valley Quilters Guild
Quilt Story: Pattern by Farmhouse Threads and Friends – “This was a BOM on Facebook by several designers who each posted a free pattern each month.  I used wool and cotton from my stash to construct the blocks – hand appliqued each block and some included embroidery embellishments.  I enjoyed making this quilt – one of my favorites.”

2nd Place – “Calico Garden” by Jessie VandenBerg, Olathe Quilters Guild
Quilt Story:  Pattern by Hoopla, from Shelburne Museum Series — “I started this quilt at least 20 years ago.  It was a UFO until last year.”

3rd Place — “Oriental Cabins” by Sandra David, Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City
Quilt Story: Pattern by Emiko Yoshida, Japan — “This quilt is a paper pieced log cabin with oriental undertones.  I love the movement of the patterns made by the log cabin placement.”
