Sheila Frampton-Cooper, aka Zoombaby, had another quilt in Road to California 2012. Her quilt, A View From Above, took 3rd place, Art Abstract. Here is what Sheila has to say about her quilt.
This originally started as a very small color study, but to my surprise and enjoyment, it decided to grow. I've observed that when you allow the energy to flow without an agenda, you are given a gift. Several people said, "hey, it looks like the view from the plane when you are flying over the midwest". I recently flew from OH to LA, and looked out of the window and wow, there it was, my view from above.
It took Sheila three solid months to piece the top and another 6 weeks to quilt it.
