The Pacific International Quilt Festival has selected the quilt, “ENTERING EGGBERT” by Sharyn Mellors of Ledgewood Beach, to be hung and judged in the Pacific international Quilt competition. The Festival will take place October 15th through 18th in the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California.
“ENTERING EGGBERT” is a hand painted and hand appliquéd pictorial quilt depicting a small boy entering his best friend, Eggbert the rooster, into the county fair of days gone by. The boy is complete with his red wagon full of hay and slingshot sticking out of his back pocket. The 41” x 36 ½” wall hanging has won two Best of Show awards, a People’s choice, Award of Merit and several other ribbons locally. This quilt may be viewed at http://www.whidbeystudios.com
