Best of Show: Small Quilt

Title: Resistance Reimagined
Artist: Diane Bierwagen
Original Design

“5 years ago I made a piece called Threads of Resistance encouraging people to engage in the political process. Issues, names and phone numbers of congressional representatives from MT, and poetry were part of this piece. This year I cut it up and repurposed it for a Small Things Matter challenge. I added positives ideas in each of star points. It was a delightful endeavor.”
Title: Butterfly Girl
Artist: Jacque Younger

I learned while making this quilt that I don’t like “fussy cutting” small pieces.
