More quilts and some winners from Houston.

This amazing quilt is called Mary Simon Rediscovered by Nancy Kerns.
Her goal was to closely reproduce an antique  Baltimore quilt top from the DAR museum.
Her design source was the Mary Simon Pattern set from the DAR Museum.

This quilt just amazed me with it's size and precise piecing. 
Yes, it's not much bigger than its 1st place ribbon.
Called Mission: Impeccable by Kumiko Frydl.
Design source : Mariners compass.

The colors of this quilt was stunning.

FY2-AColonial History by Dianne M. Sehorne.
