The Marilyn Smith Award for Excellence in Quiltmaking

This magnificent quilt was photographed at the 2009 AQS Show at Paducah.  It did not win a prize at Paducah (I thought it was totally outstanding) but went on to win a major award at the 2009 Houston quilt show.  Garden of Dream was made by Fusako Takido Shizuoka of Shizuoka, Japan.  I loved the way she hand appliqued the flowers in the form of a star.  It was just exquisite. The quilting in the white frame around the star was very beautiful.  This quilt was completely hand made.
