Dyeing for Winners

This beautiful quilt is by Sue Gilgen. Sue's "Autumn Birches" recently won first place in the Art-Naturescape category at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX (November 2010). Please note the hand dyed fabric in the lower right that makes up the golden water. That's a piece of my Chocolate Squash fabric! I just love how she uses the gradation of color. Thank you Sue for making a wonderful piece of art and for using my fabric!
