“Fall Color” takes a first place at MQX-Pacific!

Fall Color by Susan Brubaker Knapp (2013)
15" x 20"

I just found out that my piece “Fall Color” took first place in the Small Wallhanging category at MQX – Pacific Northwest 2013! The event is being held this week and weekend in Portland, Oregon. 

I made this piece using fusible applique, then heavily threadsketched it to add all the detail before quilting it. It was featured earlier this fall in AQS’s American Quilter magazine.


  1. Congratulations on a well deserved ribbon. You do so much with a simple design and make it so much more with your use of fabrics and stitching.


  2. The ProChem class was GREAT!!! Now I want to take a thread sketching class.....maybe at VQF?....Just sayin'....

  3. Forgot to say Congrats on the ribbon!!
