"Summer Wind" was the winner of the Baby Lock Master Award for Innovative Artistry at IQA Houston 2014.

Artist Statement:

"The strong and hot colors of Ann Bocek's oil  painting inspired me to dye my own silk and form the quilt, using a great number of colors and shades.  I was also challenged to reproduce in fabric the painting's hair movement with the available textile techniques and the quilting."

Becky Goldsmith's quilt is lovingly called the "Ugly Guild Challenge" quilt.  (Sure wish all my challenge quilts were this "ugly.")

Becky asked her blog readers to send her their ugliest fabric.  She said that she would make a quilt with everything that she received.  She added white to the fabrics she received.  Grouping the fabrics by families (reds, blues, etc.) helped when putting the entire piece together.   She pieced the back with remnants.

Star Members can watch Becky in Show 1704 - Color Challenges and a Quickie Quilt when it debuts on August 17, 2015.
