If the Applique Fairy ever tapped me with her magic wand I would love to make something like this magnificent prize winner from that show:     I could stare at it for hours.

oh my goodness.   Without reading the info card, my bet would be that this is from a Japanese quilter.  They do the most AMAZING applique and quilting.

It reminds me a little of the "Town and Country" quilt by Gourmet Quilter (which was a Block of the DAY back in 2016).  

I have seen the pattern, but I think she did some different things in the center. Or maybe there are multiple pattern with the houses in a circle like that. I do like hers regardless, woukd love to see it in person. Maybe it will be in Houston in Nov.

The 2nd one was done by a former forum member, Gail S. She used to post in the hand piecing discussion. I have seen her quilts in Dallas a few times.

Not to be grammer scrooge, but oh my, couldn't some one proof their descriptions?  Yikes.
