mandala-1
Name of Maker: Suellen Glover

This pattern is made of 5 wedges, each with 3 pieces - mirror image top pieces and a point.  I did not want to bind a 10 sided quilt, and thought it would be easier for the recipient to hang as a square.  I added an extension to each of the 10 top pieces and the squared it off.

a-peacock-s-tale
Name of Maker: Zohra Arastu
I am a Muslim  -- born in India -- and my work is inspired by my heritage, and the natural beauty and architecture of my land. My mother encouraged me to sew from the time I was six years old so I say, “if something can be sewn, I can sew it.” The International Quilt Contest has inspired me to create with different materials: batik, polysuede, trim, metallic, and polyester threads. I have appliqued and embellished with various machine embroidery stitches. I also enjoyed the free-motion embroidery and hand-stitching the beads and sequins to give a sparkle.
 
The peacock is the national bird of India and with its grace and vivid coloration, it is the epitome of the diverse culture of India unified in one creature. I have always loved the peacock and therefore decided to make it the focal point of my quilt. The paisley is another ubiquitous design in India and it is a symbol for the many indigenous varieties of mangoes. I have always had an infatuation with paisleys so my quilt could not be complete without it. The Islamic arch represents the ancient architecture sprinkled throughout India, and it is the window through which I see the world -- one filled with color and diversity, coexisting in harmony.

erythema-migrans-rage
Name of Maker: Susan L. Jaenen-Griffin

"Erythema Migrans Rash" is one of fifty-two quilts in the series "52 Yarns of Lyme - The Lyme Dis-Ease Series" by Susan Jaenen-Griffin that includes traditional quilts, contemporary art quilts, 3d fiber pieces, abstract and mixed media pieces.  The series tells the 'yarns' or stories of my journey with Lyme disease and how engaging in fiber art assisted in my recovery.  The following is the artist statement for the quilt: 

Fabrics are used in this quilt to express the rage of the EM rash which is only the beginning of worse things to come.  Medical journals report that the presence of an Erythema Migrans Rash is “sufficient to make the diagnosis of Lyme” however; it is the controversy around the treatment and the bigger issue of the long term consequences of Lyme that is the real storm.
