First, I have to say not one of those look like a quilt. Second, I must say, what talent! And third, I guess I'd have to go with Quilt #2 or B.

These must have to be wall hung, to appreciate the talent that went into it, also, because of the subject matter, some of which is sad. Can't imagine the family pet rolling around on these

That said,I voted for C...

All of them were beautiful but I liked #2 best. I agree that they would have to be hung on the wall and not put on a bed. Of course my dog doesn't care what he is on as long as it is a blanket of some kind. Not one of these!

I loved them all. In fact there were some there that would some amazing, but my picture didn't do them justice. I loved quilt E because you can read the subject how you want. But the way it's quilted is wow. It really looks like a hallway. All the lines on the floor, ceiling, and walls are sewn to give the 3D feel. There are more pictures on my FB if you guys are interested. Here are some close up pictures of both Quilt C and Quilt B. Quilt B reminded me of the arch in Cabo San Lucas. I took the close up shots so I could see the detail and the quilting technique. I have fun shopping so they had the greatest thread and hand dyed farbics.

Speaking of the family pet I had a hard time deciding on quilts for the poll this one got left off the list. But as a pet owner with 2 dogs and 1 cat I loved it.

The cat on the quilt looks like my cat Elwood. These quilts probably take a year of more to make and the skill level is amazing. I have a long way to go. But each quilt I make gets a little better.
