My sister Claire's quilt won Best in Show and Judges Favorite at the Alameda County Fair!
You can see why....it's beautiful. The bear holding a fish in its mouth, is a paper piece pattern, each color value is a different piece of material. You can't really see from the photo but the bear is sewn down to give it texture like fur. She then framed the bear with different color bear claws which take a lot of time to make.... but its worth it!
