This vision of St. Michael was inspired by Russian lacquer painting and frescoes.

Maker: Thalia Patricio Quilter: Thalia Patricio

Design Basis: Based on The Dress but done as Witch

 1st Place: Human Image Award

$1,000 Title: ERIN

Maker: Sandy Curran Quilter: Sandy Curran

Design Basis: Maker's Original Design

To me, my daughter, Erin, is one of the most beautiful people on earth. I have been afraid to do a portrait of her because I believed I could never do her justice. So, I created an unlikely color scheme and a simplified pattern. You can still recognize Erin, but, because it is not literal, I don't have to agonize over whether or not I captured her.

2nd Place: Human Image Award

$750

Title: The Sprinter

Maker: Birgit Schueller Quilter: Birgit Schueller

Design Basis: Maker's Original Design

I am not a sprinter, but I am a runner. I run for different reasons - out of habit, to sort my thoughts, to elaborate on ideas, to tackle problems, to calm down, to experience physical exhaustion. I leave a lot of things behind, I find a new perspective on things, I can determine goals more clearly. To me running is freedom, running allows me to break free from the stress and restrictions of everyday life!

3rd Place: Human Image Award

$500

Title: The Musicians Maker: LeAnn Hileman

For several years I have been taking pictures of the ocean, especially the Pacific, crashing on the shore.

I have since loved those deserted beaches and the powerful waves thundering as they reach the cliffs and land.

Title: By the Chimney with Care

Maker: Karen Turnbull Quilter: Karen Turnbull

Design Basis: Maker's Original Design

I was inspired by my Norwegian heritage to try to create a Scandinavian scene. I even taught myself to make Norwegian Hardanger lace to decorate the mantel and stockings. The technique is fused, raw-edge applique, using Pellon Wonderunder and sewn on a domestic Janome. I was inspired to make a fireplace scene to hang on the living roomwall each Christmas, because my house doesn't have a real fireplace and mantel.

3rd Place: Pictorial Award

$1.000

Title: Flower News

Maker: Mrs. Sachiko Chiba Quilter: Mrs. Sachiko Chiba

Design Basis: Maker's Original Design

I wanted to express the beautiful flowers which bloomed seasonally and arranged this quilt. I was particular about selection of cloth to look like flowers realistically. Because I put many kinds of flowers, I examined it closely and reworked it many times and finished the design.
