Congratulations to Brittany Bowen Burton who was awarded Best Machine Quilting – Framed and used some Oakshott fabrics in the magnificent piece. She said:
My quilt won one of the major awards at QuiltCon 2017 and has some Oakshott cottons in it as well. I purchased them from Pinwheels at the 2015 QuiltCon. I was so happy that Pinwheels was at the show this year and spent a good chunk of change on building my stash to make more quilts with your truly beautiful fabrics.

"Religious texts mention few women, unfortunately, for there have always been great women. We know of Mary, the Madonna, because she was mother to Jesus. Often, I look beyond the walls of my home to find personal value and purpose, but as I created this quilt, I was reminded that my greatest power and influence is as a mother and in what I teach my children to become. As Mary was, I too can be a mother to greatness. This quilt was born at QuiltCon 2016, inspired by the score for ‘Get Your Curve On’ featured in The Improv Handbook For Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood."
