This is my version of Capistrano from your book, Stellar Quilts. When I saw this quilt, I knew I had to make it in batiks. As you can see it won both a first place and best use of color ribbons in the Venice Area Quilters' Guild Show in Venice, Florida at the beginning of this month. It looks spectacular on our bed. The Y seams were challenging, but the result was worth it. Thanks for designing it.

Today I received notification that Capistrano has been accepted in the 2013 AQS QuiltWeek Contest in Grand Rapids, Michigan, August 14-17, 2013.
