    I recently completed my first quilt at classes. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed looking at all of these wonderful mini quilts. It is such a wonderful art form and now that I have the knowledge and the skills and as I build more I look forward to creating my own works of art.

    Amazing quilts! Makes me want to get down to my sewing room this morning. They were all so impressive it must have been very difficult to select the winners.
