$3,000 Winner

And this was the fabric art ( the term quilt just doesn't do it justice ) that was judged the very best work in the entire show of approximately 200 enteries. The artist won $3,000 which probably breaks down to about $5 an hour because the artist has hundreds of hours of work into this quilt. IT IS ALL PIECES OF FABRIC SEWN TOGETHER! The raw edges are turned under and probably hand stitched in place. The size is about 6' by 5' and it truly looks like a painting. The bottom picture is a close-up of one small section. And trust me you cannot tell from a photo the intricate details of this AMAZING work.
