Award of Excellence
This award recognizes the high level of technical skill and difficulty employed by the quilter. The recipient
is chosen by local quilt club quilters with entries in the show.
The Award of Excellence went to Teresa Locknane, Wausau, WI for her quilt titled Sunflowers. Teresa’s
wallhanging featured sunflowers created using a raw edge applique technique.
3 Peoples’ Choice awards were presented based on votes cast by visitors to the show who were asked to vote for
the quilt or quilts which appealed to them the most. Each visitor was allowed 3 votes.
1st place went to Linda Peterson of Weston, WI for Lakeshore. Linda’s quilt employed soft hues
of blue and green batiks in a complicated overall design which incorporated many traditional block patterns.
2nd place was awarded to Dar Ryba-Borchardt of Wittenberg, WI for Cost of Freedom. Depicting a
variety of scenes in the life of our soldiers, Dar beautifully pays honor to our veterans and the fallen of the Vietnam War through the use of machine embroidery.
3rd place was awarded to Marge Mech of Wausau, WI for Chenille Warmth. Her quilt made of plaid
flannels, employed a unique technique of creating chenille strips to pull the whole piece together.
