Amy Gay reports the loss of a quilt made by Katherine Gay called Diamond in the Rough. The quilt was last seen at the Cajun Dome on February 21, 2018 in Lafayette, Louisiana. It was turned in for the State JrBeta convention. It was judged and placed second, but it was never seen again.
On April 7, Amy reported that this quilt, along with all of the stolen art projects, magically reappeared! This means that Katherine will be able move on to the National Jr Beta Convention in June. By then, Amy plans on purchasing a Tile and sewing it to the label.
This quilt is 76″ by 100″. It is mainly green batiks and purple and teal solids. It has hand-guided quilting with paisley and meander patterns. It has a unique scrappy backing made from leftover fabrics. There is a label which says, “Diamond in the Rough, All piecing and hand-guided machine quilting done by Kat Gay, February 2018.” The label is hand stitched to the bottom corner of the quilt.
