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…
[My block is very similar to the 2nd place applique block that I had adapted it for a wholecloth interpretation. You can see close-up pictures of my block here]
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!
