Featuring Ramona Resurreccion!!!

I received a lovely email from Ramona Resurreccion from Australia and a picture of her gorgeous prize winning linen wholecloth quilt.

I had the pleasure of teaching in Adelaide four years ago and it was my very first international that makes it extra special.   Ramona won "Excellence in Long Arm Quilting" in the small quilt category which is a major award at the Quilt Showcase.  Congratulations Ramona!!!  Here's her story below...

Hugs, Cindy :)

"I purchased the linen from a vintage store in Melbourne about two years ago and had to bleach the stain off.  I now have several vintage linens waiting to be quilted.

This was quilted with a mustard coloured cotton background on my longarm quilting machine then embellished it with pearl beads including around the edge of the scallop binding.

I got my sister to attend your class in Adelaide as your class clashed with the other one I had. "

Cheers, Ramona Resurreccion, Melbourne

Wow. Ramona did a fantastic job. Glad to see this quilt win an award and I think it would get many more awards if exhibited in more shows. Absolutely stunning and inspirational quilt.
Thanks for sharing.
