The Marilyn Smith Award for Excellence in Quiltmaking/ "Son Compass"
This beautiful quilt, entitled "Son Compass" was photographed at the 2007 AQS Show, Paducah. It was made by Elizabeth Spannring of La Center, WA. It is just so beautiful, it is hard to describe. The background fabric is a mottled white/ecru and the spiky pieced motifs are various blues. The most outstanding feature of this quilt is the spectacular feather quilting. This didn't win a prize at Paducah, but in my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful traditional quilts I have seen.
