Twin Rivers Quilt Guild member, Susan Marra, was awarded her second consecutive blue ribbon at the prestigious Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, Virginia. Billed as the largest show of its kind on the Eastern Seaboard, the four day event featured over five hundred quilts.
Susan’s entry “Modern Morris” took top honors in the Traditional Hands Workmanship category.
The colorful all hand stitched appliqué design took over six months to complete, measures six feet square, and contains twelve stitches per inch. Last years’ entry, “Clowns”, won a blue ribbon in the Innovative category.
