More quilts from the NC Quilt Symposium

I am just in awe of the talent and creativity so many of these quilts represent.  Here are a few more of my favorites from the symposium.
Little Red School House 2010 - made by Sally Cascario. 
Each of the school houses is a different red fabric. The border then
uses all of the reds to tie it all together and is just stunning.
First prize winner in Pieced Bed Quilts
Enchanted Forest made by Marilyn Wunsch. Pattern is by Renee Peterson.
I am in awe.  I love the colors and would love to hang this in my house.
Must first learn to paperpiece...  2nd prize, Small Wall Hanging.
Americana made by Carol Robinson.  3rd Prize Wall Hanging Large.
I think this one is stunning in its simplicity.  It reminds me of a Hawaiian Style quilt.
I am fascinated by the miniatures - and the workmanship that goes into them.

A very unusual quilt in the Studio Art category - I'm including the card as I really like her description.

And last but certainly not least - the one I picked as viewer's choice...
