Congratulations to South Florida Modern Quilt Guild's Nicole Kaplan for her winning entry in the 2018 Quilt Expo Modern Mini Challenge

"You Belong Among the Wildflowers" by Nicole Kaplan (Boca Raton, FL) 18" x 18"

Nicole said: "I was inspired by photographs of my young daughters, who have wild and untamed red hair. I wanted to celebrate their youth and natural vitality. I learned the raw-edge collage technique from a Melissa Averinos workshop and quilted it with perfectly-imperfect crosshatching."

We are always delighted to see a Florida quilter get some well deserved national attention.  Congratulations, Nicole!
