Detail Oriented

Our March/April 2017 cover artist, Bethanne Nemesh, is well know for her attention to detail and expert workmanship. Combine that with her beautiful design sense and you end up with a winning combination! In fact, her cover quilt, Into the Westward Sun, has only been exhibited in the last few months and  has already won major awards at Machine Quilters Exposition Midwest, 2016, Road to California Quilt Show, 2017, and the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. Congratulations Bethanne!

Here are a few detail shots from her stunning quilts.

First, a graceful butterfly from Gilding the Arbor. Note the delicate insert by the binding.

How about a closer look at Into the Westward Sun? Bethanne’s “pictographic” quilting is simply amazing. Again, not only is her quilting highly detailed, but she included highly effective (and time consuming) details like beaded piping and prairie points.
