Fauna Wins 2nd Place at PIQF!!
Fauna by the Gomez Sisters, Frances Holliday Alford, Kathy York, Vickie Hallmark, Julie John Upshaw, and Judy Coates Perez, (left to right), has won 2nd place at Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, California! Fauna made it's first public showing in Quilting Arts Magazine (April, 2007). As a group, we longed for Fauna to be seen in person at a quilt show, and are delighted that it has done so well, especially after been rejected from two other venues. Below I have attached a few close ups (you might have guessed, I have a new close up lens that I have been playing with). Can you tell that I love dots? I have included the seahorse eye, seahorse belly, and the seahorse tail. I had to show a close up of the fish as well...no real reason, except that I just really like fish. Enjoy!
