Tribute to Tolkien by Sue McCarty has won numerous awards including the Pfaff Master Award for Machine Artistry in IQA Houston 2009.  It was also voted Viewer's Choice.

The quilt was inspired when her brother convinced her to read The Lord of the Rings.  She decided she wanted to create the piece for her brother, a Tolkien devotee of over 30 years.

The centerpiece of the quilt depicts Aragorn's victory, his coronation as the King of Gondor, and his marriage to Arwen.

It is a wholecloth quilt and uses a variety of threads, many of which are metallic.  It took Sue close to 500 hours from design to completion.

Giant Clam by Hollis Chatelain is one of a series of quilts she created based on the beauty and serenity of the underwater world.  It is 25" x 36" and uses hand-dye-painted fabric and is machine quilted.

Artist Statement:

During the last years I lived in Africa, I could see the ocean from my studio window. When I started noticing how many water related dreams and drawing ideas kept surfacing, I realized how living by the ocean for the first time was affecting my work. I became increasingly intrigued by the contrasts between the often rough and wild surface of the ocean and the beauty and serenity of the underwater world. I decided to make a series of underwater quilts to translate these feelings and emotions into my art.I love the graphics of the giant clam and made up the colors to suit what I thought it should look like.
