The quilting was beautiful too and we especially liked how she created a separation of the block areas with a linear arrangement of quilting designs.
My second selection was Mt. Ruffmore by Paulene Salzman. The presidential dogs: Bo, Buddy, Barney, and Heidi look very regal on their mountain. Each of them has a bit of attitude as they survey their surroundings and a twinkle in their eyes. A bit like they're getting ready to dash off the mountain and run around to greet their visitors - a wonderfully whimsical piece.
