Life Unfolding did just that, it unfolded during the design process for Barbara Olson (tqs member: barbquiltart). She says, "It first revealed a forest, then planets and evolved to an under the ocean image. Stain stitching, yarns and beads add to its energy."

Fashion Lines by Gloria Hansen was exhibited as part of the Digital Imagery exhibition sponsored by C&T Publishing at IQF Houston 2013.

Artist's Statement: This piece is based on torn images from fashion magazines that I collaged together and then photographed.  The photographs were digitally combined, manipulated, and then printed onto silk fabric. I used some acrylic paint and fabric pastel to add shading and then machine quilted the piece.

This week's puzzle is a beautiful quilt by Harumi Asada, Just Splendid.  It is computer printed, hand-pieced, appliqued and quilted.  

She writes, "Many kinds of flowers bloom in the yard of my home every year.  Times may be difficult, but the flowers still have beautiful blooms. I took pictures and printed them on cloth, and I inserted them in the applique of a flower."

Harumi's quilt was part of the In Full Bloom exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2013.
