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.
