FanSea FantaSea

It is a real honour for me to post the picture of this beautiful quilt stitched by Patricia Saklas of New Jersey. This is Patricia’s nautical interpretation of my Beauty of Christmas design. Entitled FanSea FantaSea, it has been juried into the AQS show in Lancaster, PA which opens today. If you click the picture to enlarge, you can see Pat’s extensive- and exquisite - quilting. The show in Lancaster runs from March 24th to 27th.
It is no small accomplishment to have a piece accepted into an AQS show, and Pat is a semifinalist in this contest. Congratulations and well wishes may be left here for Patricia to receive by clicking “comments” at the bottom of this posting; I will make sure they are forwarded to her. Best of luck, Patricia!

  2. What a beautiful piece of work!! I wish i could attend the show to see this in person. I love the colors in this, they seem to have motion and the swirl effect makes me think of the sea. Patricia this is so lovely and I amd wishing you all the best on it, and will be anxious to check back to see how you did.
