Seaside Piecemakers Quilt Club
Timeless Treasures Quilt Show is proud to present the quilt that was judged "Best of Show".
After two days of judging 260 quilts in several categories, Molly Waddell, a National Quilting Association Certified Quilt Judge announced the selection at Heritage Isle Club House in Viera before the quilt show committee members on Saturday, March 3, 2012. She commented at a Q & A after the judging: "Your quilts are phenomenal. You have many very talented members in your group". She was very impressed with the entries and wished she could hand out more rewards than were allotted. (www.mollywaddell.com)
|Winning quilt "Cosmic Explosion"|
The Best of Show quilt titled "Cosmic Explosion" was created by Marilyn Rutkowski of Viera, a long time member of the guild and it was quilted by Laurel Merill of Merritt Island. The collaborative efforts of both quilt makers created a stunning wall-hanging size quilt. They were not present at the judging but have been notified of the award.
