A Most Amazing Award Winning Quilt
Well we all knew by just looking at "Perseus Saving Andromeda" by Marilyn Belford that it is a magnificant quilt. Now the proof is in the pudding so to speak as this quilt not only won "Best Large Quilt" at the Road to California quilt show but more recently, "Best of Show" and "Viewer's Choice" at Mancuso's Quilt Fest in New Jersey. We can see why!
"Andromeda was a princess from Greek mythology who, as divine punishment for her mother's bragging that she was the most beautiful girl in the world was chained to a rock by Poseidon as a sacrifice to a sea monster . Perseus, a demigod finds Andromeda and slays the Water Dragon, taking Andromeda for his wife."
These following photos show some of the detail Marilyn has used in this quilt.
