This week's puzzle is by Sheila Frampton Cooper.  It is Life in the City and recently won an Honorable Mention in the Art Abstract Large category at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2011.

Here's what Sheila had to say about her quilt:

My inspiration for this quilt is simply my love of color, espcially in nature.  As a native of Los Angeles, this is my representation of life in the city -- the parks, trees, flowers, birds, busy intersections, my love of driving, and colorful people.  I truly enjoyed participating in its creation.

You can learn more about Sheila from her interviews with Sharon Pederson at festival. Click here and here to watch her interviews.
