Anne Daughtry Takes Blue Ribbon at Umpqua Valley

Anne Daughtry won a blue ribbon in the Art Quilt category at the Umpqua Valley Guilter's Guild Annual Quilt Show.  The title of the quilt, The Trees We Hug, is a play on Oregon’s reputation.  The show judge commented on Anne's excellent use of non-traditional quilting fabric to enhance the design.  Fabrics include cotton, fleece lined poly suede, poly suede, velvet, gauze, wool yarn, upholstery fabric, net, and a lot of stabilizer lace.   Techniques included  machine and hand quilting, embroidery both machine and hand,  and painted skies.   For more of Anne's work, visit her website.
