Hand Made Wall hanging with sleeve 32 x 32. Myrl Dean Tapungot my mother who passed away last year has was a world class quilt designer and maker she won several first place ribbons in group quilting at Paducah and Houston for some of her larger fine works of art. This was a lap quilt made from remnants and scraps from many years of quilt making. There are only a few of her quilts left. Machine pieced, hand quilted and hand bound cotton backing and binding, polyester batting cotton.Christmas log cabin motif with embellished Christmas cotton center medallion and Christmas prints. Myrl Lehman Tapungot's entry, "Mystic Beauty II", won first prize in the Bed Quilts Category Group.
Tapungot joined 428 other quilters in the annual contest. Her "Mystic Beauty II" quilt measures 89 inches wide by 89 inches long, and represents hundreds of hours of work. It will be featured in the Fall 2006 issue of American Quilter magazine, which will be in homes and on newsstand in early June, said the magazine's executive editor Christine N. We have been around for many years, and we have been winning awards for quite a while.
"But in order to offer large works to the general "quilt loving public, we have to do our quilts as a group/team effort. Some of our quilts can easily take over a year of dedicated effort to complete.We pride ourselves in making quilts with near perfect, identical stitches, and even experts using magnifying glasses find it difficult or impossible to tell the difference. "Mystic Beauty II" was chosen as a semi-finalist from a field of 806 quilts and compete against others within its category (Bed Quilts). Three quilting authorities judged the elite group prior to the opening of the show.
In addition, the quilt will become part of the permanent collection in the Museum of the American Quilter's Society. AQS president, Meredith Schroeder said quilts are no longer relegated to serving as mere bed covers but have evolved into works of art, using fabric and thread as the medium. The quilts in this year's contest are from around the world and feature beautiful palettes of color.
Entries arrived from 46 U. States and 12 other countries, including France, Israel, Korea and Australia. There were fifteen categories in the judged contest and a special category for young quilters.The quilts include bed-size, large and small wall quilts and miniatures. Designs range from traditional Log Cabin, Mariner's Compass and New York Beauty to innovative designs using paint, threads and original designs.
Tapungot stressed that while she designs and directly supervises all the work done on her award winning quilts, it is a collective effort by M. Dean's House of Design, a small family business that started in 1984 in their residence at Villa Ernesto Subdivision in Gusa, Cagayan de Oro City. We employ some 150 handicraft people in the making of our beautiful quilts, all done by hand, to achieve that special look that can't be duplicated by any machine. This is a long, intricate process, because we do some of the finest stitching in the world. However, for maximum strength and accurate alignment, all of our piecing is done by machine.
As can be surmised from a multi-awarded craftsman, there is pride in their work, too. "We guarantee all of our quilts 100% , " Tapungot asserts with confidence. Although almost all of her quilters did not have any previous experience in quilting, M. Dean's established a family tradition among the quilters she employs who sometimes have three generations of their kin quilting together the award-winning designs in their homes. "Many of our quilters' main source of income is farming, and quilting provides a valuable source of supplemental income between planting and harvesting, " Tapungot explained.Most of the quilting is done in the traditional way, in the employee's individual homes, providing scores of families in our area additional income and stability. This also affords the homemakers a chance to earn income while caring for their homes and families. Tapungot is not bothered by the country's lack of a tradition in quilting, which was pioneered in Cagayan de Oro by another Filipino quilter from Carmen, Ellen K. Delgado and the Oro House of Patches.
We have set up shop here off the beaten track and have grown independent of what is going on with the rest of the Quilt world. We offer original designs and methods few have the means or skill to do.We think you will agree that our Trapunto MAGIC is a complete departure from other more traditional Trapunto Quilting. We make lovely three (3) dimensional Quilts that will please the eye, the hand, as well as the heart.
