Unbelievably magnificent Tolkien quilt wins competition

You have to see it to believe it. This “Tribute to Tolkien” qulit to Best In Show at the 2010 American Quilt Society annual competition.

Sue McCarty of Roy, UT won 'Best in Show' at the 2010 American Quilt Society show.

This tribute quilt stylized on Tolkien's Middle-earth took Best In Show for 2010 at the American Quilt Society's annual show.

Several news articles covered the quilt’s win but this article with accompanying video seems to offer the best coverage.

The incredible details — barely visible in this image — include Elvish Tengwar (at the center top), the Doors of Durin from Moria, a swan boat or ship, Eomer and Eowyn standing before Theoden, the horn of Boromir, the White Tree of Gondor, Ringwraiths, Barad-dur, Orthanc, and much, much more.

A lot of hard work went into the quilt. I hope I get an opportunity to see it up close some day.
