Today's quilt was created by Jan Potter of Scottsdale, AZ.  Jan was inspired by the White Buffalo Calf Woman legend of the Lakota Sioux.  She used Cherrywood fabrics for the solid colors and Ricky's multi-colored hand dyes.  The face is hand painted with fabric inks and the buffalo is painted and thread-embellished.  White Buffalo Calf Woman Rhapsody was quilted at home on a domestic BERNINA.  This one is a beauty, do the puzzle and find out for yourself.

Leslie says her love of gray fabrics inspired this quilt and that the name, Fifty Shades of Groovy, is a little wink toward a phenomenon in the cultural zeitgeist.  It is machine pieced and quilted on a longarm and measures 87.5" x 63.5."

Leslie's Design Process:
Beginning with the dotted cloth cut into squares, I pieced it using two widths of cloth in three shades of gray.  Working intuitively to balance the values, I pieced the rest of the quilt.

This is Amsterdam Alley: The Shortcut Between by Leslie T. Jenison. It measures 48" x 36" and the materials used include: silk, cotton, canvas, dye, paint, bamboo felt, both cotton and polyester thread, along with Mistyfuse fusible.  It is currently part of a private collection.

Artist Statement:

This quilt was inspired by a photograph I took during a trip to Amsterdam, Netherlands.  I felt it would be an interesting challenge to expand the borders of the image into a quilt.  The dye-painted graffiti is based on the colorful images I was exposed to in other parts of the city.

Here is The Coffee Break by Leslie T. Jenison.

Artist Statement:

The Coffee Break refers to a long-running email conversation with my friend and teaching partner, Jamie Fingal. When I see “coffee break” in the subject line, I know to get my cuppa and put my feet up, because it will be a long conversation in print. We discuss business items, personal issues…you name it; the coffee break has been a long-running habit which is often more of a lifeline.
