Made from a pattern in Judy Martin’s book, Yes You Can Make Stunning Quilts From Simple Designs
, #450-321 from Loveland, Colorado wowed judges with Keltic Sunrise. Made of polyester double-knit, satin, brocade, corduroy, lace curtains, burlap, old diapers and four different kinds of fake fur, this masterpiece made most of the judges woozy.
Tied together visually with hand crocheted orange and yellow yarn as binding and with humongous 4-ply quilt stitches (and plenty of knots) throughout, this quilt is a tactile nightmare.
“Touching this quilt is like running your fingernails up and down a blackboard,” said one judge as she shuddered and headed for the door.
This quilt earned the “Yes You Can Make Stunning Quilts From Simple Patterns But Didn’t Award” and 48 copies of Judy Martin’s
book! (Now out of print.)
