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.

Karen spent one year creating and applying the appliqué to Majestic Mosaic and then Renae spent a year doing the machine quilting. All that work paid off as it won Best of Show at AQS Paducah in 2015. This was the second time that Karen and Renae collaborated. They won BOS previously with their quilt, "Fiesta Mexico." (Click here to see a Zoom Quilt of "Fiesta Mexico.")

From Karen's website:

This exuberant hand-appliquéd quilt was inspired by the nineteenth-century German textile designer Friedrich Fischbach. Karen cut each piece for the center motif and arranged it on a design board before beginning to sew so she could make changes easily. After the center was stitched, she selected the fabric for the edge and designed the border using elements from the center. The quilt also includes reverse appliqué, piping, and more than 400 circles. Karen says, "I love making circles, but quilting around each one is another story!"

Earthly Delights appeared on the September 1999 cover of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine.

The Dragon is one of Karen's first competition quilts. She entered her first major quilt competition in the spring of 1991. The Dragon received a first place in one show and second place in another. It was truly the start of Karen designing her own quilts and entering many more shows.
