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!

Perseus Saving Andromeda

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.

  • I took Marilyn's Art for Quilters at Quilt University and learned so much! I highly recommend Marilyn's classes to anyone interested in learning to make art quilts or portrait quilts. Her techniques produce stunning results (as you can see from Perseus Saving Andromeda). Charmion Stephens
