ABQMQG Banner

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!  Pick me a winner!  We are the champions!

I could go on and on.  What’s all the excitement about?  Our guild banner took home Best Machine Quilting (Frameless) for QuiltCon 2016.  The banner was designed by Bob Lowe, pieced by Lois Warwick, appliqued by Sally Williams and Laurie Moodie.  The machine quilting was done by Renee Hoffman of quiltsofafeather.com.  It’s not hard to see why Renee’s quilting nabbed such a prestigious award.  The level of detail in this quilt is astounding.  What’s even more amazing is she did all of the quilting on her Janome MC6300.  She spent over 40 hours working on the quilting details of this quilt, including trimming, blocking, adding the binding and hanging sleeve.  To see more about her process,visit her blog post.  Congratulations from all of us at the ABQMQG!reneebanner.jpg
