Celestial Splendor by Rachel Wetzler won 2nd Place: Innovative, Wall, Applique at Road to California 2014.

Design basis: The Ceiling in Canterbury Cathedral
Artist statement: Celestial Splendor is based on the ceiling in the crossing tower of Canterbury Cathedral, one of the oldest and most famous Christian structures in England. Canterbury was an important spiritual center ever since Augustine, but it became a major pilgrimage destination after the martyrdom of St. Thomas Becket in 1170. The tower and ceiling were designed by English gothic architect John Wastell.

All The Pretty Pieces by Lorraine K. Williams was on display as part of the Traditional Mixed category at Road to California 2014.  Lorraine writes, "This is one of my favorite designers and the pattern just spoke to me.  It was particularly fun to raid my fabric stash for this project, finding fabrics that would work together overall, but still make each block idifferent and special. Each block took on a life of its own. Little fussy cut surprises are hidden throughout. The hand applique was a pure joy. It is that 8th quilt that I have quilted myself on my A-1, and the first of my own making."
