QuiltCon 2015: Piecing category, Part 1

We will cover the Piecing category, sponsored by Aurifil, in two parts since there are so many quilts. Remember that quilts for the QuiltCon competitions are accepted into the show first and then put into categories by the judges as part of the judging process. This group has so many interesting original compositions. The category winners will be shown at the end of Part 2 later this week.

Enjoy!

  2. There are some stunning quilts in this category. I especially like Peace and Icy Waters. I am a bit confused by Mona Lisa. Certainly it is a modern aesthetic, but I am not sure why it was chosen. Is there something about it (or the category) that I am missing?
