Stephenie Meyer Quilt: Quilt Show Update

I am pleased to announce that the Stephenie Meyer Quilt has been judged as Best Group Quilt in the 36th Annual Quilt show at the Springville Museum of Art!

I attended and accepted the ribbon for the Best Group Quilt at tonight's special award presentation and preview show. 19 of the 20 awards were presented tonight (The Viewer's Choice award will be awarded at the close of the show, see details below). After the ribbons were presented to the winners, each of us got the privilege of hanging the ribbon next to our quilts! In addition to the beautiful blue ribbon, we were awarded a $100 cash prize. The nine of us involved in making this quilt have decided to donate the money to charity.

The awards presented tonight were:
Best of Show, Director's Award, Best Hand Quilting, Artistic Impression (2), Best Hand Applique, Artistic Design, Best Machine Quilting, Visual Impact, Machine Quilting & Embellishment, Flawless Workmanship (2), Creativity & Combined Techniques, Best Use of Color, Best Machine Piecing (you should see this one), Fabric Selection, Machine Piecing, Best Group Quilt (that's us!) and Fine Applique.

Here is a shot of the quilt and ribbon, as displayed at the museum.

The Stephenie Meyer Quilt will be on display from July 17th through September 2nd. During the run of the show, those in attendance will have a chance to vote for their favorite quilt of the 91 quilts on display and the Viewer's Choice award will be given at the close of the show.

Stephenie Meyer Quilt: A Work of Art

The Twilight Quilt is completely finished! Vivian delivered it to me on Tuesday (it was so nice to meet her) and I feverishly worked to get it bound, labeled and a sleeve on it so that, as Shannon said, we could treat it like a work of art. As chance would have it, the 36th Annual Quilt Show at the Springville Museum of Art in Utah was accepting quilts this week. The nine of us who worked on the quilt took a vote and as a group we decided to enter it in the show. This is a juried display at the museum. Quality in workmanship, design, color, originality, and general appeal will be the principle criteria applied by the judges. There will be awards for “Best of Show”, “Director’s Award”, “Best Hand Quilting,” as well as seventeen other awards. We obviously don't qualify for the "Best Hand Quilting" award, but is it too much to hope for "Director's Award," or "Best of Show?" (I hope the Director is a fan of the series!) The Quilt Show runs from July 17th to September 2nd and the Awards Presentation and Show Preview will be on Wednesday, July 15th from 5:00 to 6:00 pm MST. My family and I are planning on attending and I will post the results (which I hope will be good!) as soon as I can on Wednesday night.

This quilt has truly been a labor of love for all of us. Each block is an amazing work of art and Vivian's quilting, as you saw in the preview last week, added greatly to the beauty of it. She used matching thread (white on white, black on black, red on red, etc.). She highlighted and accentuated all of the beautiful blocks, quilting design around the main parts of each block, and mostly just tacked the blocks down in the detailed areas so as not to distract from the beautiful work.

Here are some close-up shots of the individual blocks (place cursor in the right hand corner to bring up play options to pause, stop, etc. the slideshow:

Stephenie Meyer Quilt: Where is it Now?

I'm guessing some of the quilt's fans are wondering where the quilt is this week?

Elizabeth (L) and Vivian (R), 7/8/09

(For the non-quilters: don't worry about that white batting border because it will be trimmed flush with the quilt top and then a fabric binding attached.)

I'm happy to report that it has made it's way to Utah and is with Elizabeth. Elizabeth is frantically getting it bound, labeled, and a hanging sleeve attached. The quilt is truly a work of art so we're going to treat it as such.

That's my tease for the day!

Stephenie Meyer Quilt: Piece, LOVE, Twilight

We've just received word from Vivian that she is feverishly working on the Twilight Quilt and is still on schedule to deliver to Elizabeth!

I've been working round the clock to be able to get the Twilight SM quilt done. I have been very busy with family events...namely lots of company at my house and getting my son ready for his 2 yr mission to New Zealand. But it's just about finished and I WILL be taking it to Utah next week with me to deliver it to Elizabeth!!! I will be posting pictures and a story when I get back. I've been taking pictures throughout the entire, wonderful process. You ladies absolutely amaze me. The attention to detail, fabric selection, tiny detailed stitches, embellishments, etc. I can tell so much love and thoughtfulness has gone into every single block. It has been such an honor to work on such a wonderful work of art. Now back to quilting...take care, Twilight Moms!

Her message above was posted on our A Quilt for Stephenie Meyer thread at Twilight Moms.

This is amazing news!

The quilt is definitely true to it's name: Piece, LOVE, Twilight.
