This surreal view of a giant seashell witnessed by the Woody comes with an amazing story. The idea and design were well under way when I made the decision to include a drawing of two palm trees done by my recently passed mother-in-law, Betty Fogg. Later to my great surprise, I found out that Betty and her new husband Fred left for their honeymoon almost 60 years ago in a Woody. Sometimes inspiration comes in unexpected ways. The shell symbolizes future home and family. Machine pieced. [2008 PIQF 1st Place Innovative] [2009 MQS 2nd Place Art/Pictorial]

Inspired by the novel Chocolat by Joanne Harris, this quilt was designed to resemble the window display of a chocolaterie. Traditional Baby Blocks form a pyramid of candy with the shop's name rendered in type and calligraphy doing double duty as it also advertises the luscious hand dyes used to create the scene. Machine pieced and hand appliqued. Heavy trapunto suggests the hearts embossed on chocolate boxes.

Quilt: Dragonfly Moon Kimono… Size: 48" x 48"… Made and quilted by: Cathy Erickson … The intense blue to white background fabric was made by Jeanette Viviano. She made two types of hand dyed sateen fabrics for the background at the same time so that the blue hue of the two fabrics would match. The first was a white to dark blue fabric and the second was a medium blue to dark blue fabric. The moon fabric is a white-on-white fabric with a rich peach and yellow hand-dyed fabric under the white fabric. The leaves are a mixture of kimono silks and cotton hand-dyed fabrics that I have collected over the years from various people. … Inspirations: Dragonflies, water, and the moon

The attic 'window' utilizes only one piece of metallic fabric. The window pane has more metallic and the ledge has less metallic. Note how well the stitching shows on the metallic fabric. The pockets holding all of the ballet slippers are from an ultra sateen blend.

This original design by Janet utilizes two seamed ultra sateens for the water background. The maori design is a very large discharged ultra sateen that was hand cut and appliqued on the water. The flying geese and the inside of the canoe are ultra sateen blends and the rope lashing on the canoe is shibori.

An ultra sateen was used for the sky to give it an effect of a winter's day. The multicolor ultra sateen contains some green in the gray. The road leading to the barns is a shibori and the bottom right field is an ultra sateen. The grayed-out background really sets the mood and bring the rest of the design forward.

Alicia first purchased fabric for this quilt at the Road to California show in 2006, bought some fabric from me online and then returned to R2C in 2007 for more fabric! The quilt won second place in her guild show in May 2007. Three yards of sateen were used. The background contains two pieces stitched together and the Enterprise is one piece cut up to simulate a reflection from the space colors.
