Today I want to share insights about an award winning quilt that was on exhibit at the Road to California Quilt Show, this past January.
Cameo Rose, by Laurie Tigner, of Rapid City, SD, is an amazing quilt. I hope you can see why it caught my attention while at Road.
Artist statement: My mother in law gave me two small traditional cameo pins of beautiful women. I loved the look of the carving and decided to try to duplicate that look in a fairly traditional wholecloth quilt. This was the result!
I loved the overall design of this quilt, the colors, the spectacular free-motion quilting. I believe she used Inktense watercolor pencils (permanent) to add color to this quilt.
I definitely found inspiration in this quilt and hope you do too!
Laurie teaches a variety of classes, including free-motion quilting on a domestic machine as well as long-arm machine.
It is also easy to see why this quilt is an award winning quilt.
