Just found out that one of Ricky's quilts has been selected as a finalist for 2012 Quilts: A World of Beauty at the Houston International Quilt Festival. Since we don't want to ruin the suprise, (you'll have to wait until Houston to see the quilt) we thought we'd show you Ricky's award-winning quilt from 2010. Asternoon Delight won an Honorable Mention in the Digital Imagery category sponsored by C&T Publishing.

Here's what Ricky has to say about this quilt.

Alternately it is called Alight Lunch or Kiss my Aster. I took a photo and then used Photoshop to stylize it. It was then printed full size (44" x 36") on my Epson 11880, then stitched/quilted with a variety of colors of thread.
