Based on a photo she had taken at the The Dallas Arboretum in 2012 at the Dale Chihuly exhibit, Melissa was taken by Chihuly's artistry and mastery of glass to create Chihuly's Gondola. Following the wise advice of learning from the best, Melissa was able to learn how to incorporate highlights, shadows, and reflections in her quilt based on Chihuly's art, creating the depth you wouldn't normally see in a 2D medium.Chihuly's Gondola's numerous awards include: the Handi Quilter Best of Show award at the Houston International Quilt Festival in 2013 and the Best of Show award at AQS QuiltWeek® – Charlotte, North Carolina 2014.
