Congratulations to Linda French of Centerville, Ohio, for her best-of-show win at the AQS Knoxville Quilt Expo. Circles of Life took Linda over three years. But what is most amazing is that this 30-year veteran hand quilter has only owned the Gammill longarm (on which this piece was quilted) for two years. Plus, she has never before entered any quilt competition! Read more about Linda and the quilt in the next issue (November 2009) of American Quilter magazine.
