The Capital of Texas QuiltFest was held at the Palmer Events Center last weekend. This annual show always features many beautiful and creative quilts created by Central Texas quilters. The raffle quilt (above) was a stunning example of this year’s theme, Red, White & Stars.
I admired a special exhibit of miniature red and white quilts called Little Ruby Jubilation. These lovely pieces were all created by sisters Ellen Carter and Andrea Blackhurst.
The Best in Show award went to Judy Wolff for her Paisley Park Feathered Star. She told me that she was both surprised and honored to win. Her award-winning quilt took about six months to complete.
