Here is the official listing of all the AQS Grand Rapids winners - Congratulations!!
I can't wait to see them hanging together -- yes, YOU, if YOU are at the show, send pics!!
This project started back toward the beginning of 2014. We were sitting at a Journeys meeting, it was just three of us -- Pam, Natalie, and myself -- and we were casually discussing the project for 2015. Out of nowhere the idea smacked us in the forehead... a face. Okay, more brainstorming, a female face. We were soooo excited (me especially as I had been wanting to make a Lucy quilt for some time). It was almost painful waiting to discuss it with the other members. The idea was well accepted and our 2015 project was planned. A few of us immediately knew what face we would be working on, while a couple of others changed their minds several times. We were not very strict with our rules -- mainly it had to be an easily recognizable female face, and had to fit within the minimum of 30" wide and a maximum of 60" long. We were able to use any technique we chose. I like that they are all different, that bothers some people, but I feel each of us had an idea and a process we wanted to follow. I don't think they would have turned out as awesome if we were all forced to follow the same technique and/or be contained in one specific size.
