Congrats, SUSAN!!!

I've written often about my friend Susan Zeil and her beautiful quilting!  Well, Susan has acquired another ribbon for Honorable Mention at the AQA Quilt show in Paducah for her quilt, 'Homage to Spring'!  How cool is that!  I love this piece Susan did...ok, I love all of Susan's quilts!  And they aren't small either.  I don't know the exact measurement but these are wall size quilts...big wall quilts! Check out this post I did on this piece when Susan was first working on it in 2009!  I think you'll appreciate the piece even more!!

This is a detail shot of Susan's work...ALL hand quilted and hand appliqued.  Susan has developed her own reverse applique method that is very labor intensive but so unique and the results are SO much better (I think!) than the so called 'normal reverse applique' technique. 

Susan helped me start on my Georgia piece using her technique and I'm so happy with the results. 

CONGRATS again my friend!  Well deserved!!!!  You can see some of the winners in this YouTube


  1. I tried to email you a thank you for commenting on my blog--for your kind words--but the email bounced back.

    I am very glad that I helped finish Jen's quilt and that she got to see it finished. It will be a treasure for her daughter.

    P.S. I am going to get out that foot and make some fringe.

  2. Oh my... a true labor of love. Well done, Susan! Is this the piece she was working on when I visited you? If so, I'm doubly impressed at how much she gets done, and so beautifully.
