2008 Old Tippecanoe Block Challenge Winners

Since I was not able to personally attend the award ceremony for the 2008 Festival of Quilts Old Tippecanoe Block Challenge at Vincennes, Indiana, I was pleased to see that Grouseland Foundation finally has the pictures of the other winning blocks!  I would love to have seen these blocks in person, but for now, the pictures would suffice…

I have since made Jane Stamper’s acquaintance — she won first place in the applique and second place in the pieced categories.   The amazing thing about her work is that she does EVERYTHING by hand!!!  I am a machine gal when it comes to quilting, so anyone who pieces and quilts by hand is simply impressive to me!

Happy Stitching, everyone!

  1. Oh, Wendy. Walking back from the mailbox yesterday and leafing through the pages of my Quilter’s mag — my jaw dropped! First was the beautiful Roslynn quilt that was featured, but then your gorgeous (words DO NOT describe how beautiuful the pics are — I can only imagine what it must look like in person!!) wholecloth block. Simply amazing!

    So inspiring. You are almost magical — thanks for sharing!
