Melissa's quilt, Silk Road Sampler, took Best of Show at Road to California 2016.

The quilt is based on a photograph and measures 60" x 67."

Melissa writes:
Where east meets west in Istanbul, there is a Spice Bazaar that has been there since 1597. There, surrounded by exotic smells and tastes, the vibrant colors of the silk road come alive. One vendor had so many ornate pillows of various colors and designs, it was like viewing an appliqué sampler.
