Nostalgia by Kayoko Watanabe - from 2010 Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival Original Design Quilt Category, 3rd prize

Rosemary Claus-Gray ~ Facade XXII 33” x 65” - completed in 2005 "…part of my series focused on transparency, texture, shape and line. I have used loosely woven scrim, like cheesecloth, stitched to sheer silk organza, creating subtle color and value shifts as one color is placed to overlap another. By using a sheer foundation, the translucence of the entire piece creates a mesmerizing work of art. Light flows through it, and changes its appearance with changing light." RCG
