Makiko’s Sampler Quilt is a technically exquisite piece of cotton and linen work. This is an exceptional traditional quilt, which any novice would be proud to have made. There are a wide range of techniques, including embroidery and yo-yos, which showcase a lot of different skills. The judges liked the balanced use of colour and textures used to evoke lovely floral imagery.
