1 Best of Show $10,000 60"x67"
D MelissaSobotka SilkRoadSampler  Where East meets West in Istanbul, there is a Spice Bazaar that has been there since 1597. There, surrounded by exotic smells and tastes, the vibrant colors of the silk road come alive. One vendor had so many ornate pillows of various colors and designs, it was like viewing an appliqué sampler.

D JudyLeslie BeachSculptures  The island of Kauai is a favorite vacation destination for my husband and me. The slowly eroding shoreline produces exquisite 'beach sculptures'. The remains of trees, with their intertwining roots, are gradually stripped of their bark to reveal incredible tints of creams, pinks and greys.

LindaThielfoldt ModernMojoTwo  $5000   65"x90"
11 $5000 65"x90"
D LindaThielfoldt ModernMojoTwo  Dill! What a great color. I bought the solid green fabric intending to make a wholecloth quilt but when I came across the spikey looking white print with the exact color in it, I knew I had to change my plans. A little graph paper, a little cutting, a whole lot of freehand quilting and Modern Mojo Two was born.
