First Prize - Judges Choice
Laura L. Strickland

About Laura's project: Fabrics - Contempo’s “Mulberry Lane” by Cherry Guidry for Benartex with several Nancy Halverson pieces old and new.

"This is a bench pillow in the style of the ones by Kimberbell. It is my original design just for this contest. It is pieced with some paper piecing. Then appliqu├ęd and embellished. It is free-motioned quilted on my domestic machine. I sewed and poked eyelets along the bunting line and strung fairy lights through the pillow top hiding the battery pack and wires inside the pillow cover."
