International Quilt Festival in Houston always showcases the MOST amazing quilts. When I look at quilts in shows, I always keep an eye out for quilts with the most interesting quilting, and this one -- Softened Precision by Beatrice Gilbert, for me, stood out for me head and shoulders above the rest.

I love the many textures used and the way that the quilting includes circles that echo the piecing. I could look at this quilt for hours!
