Marcia Eygabroat completed this eye-popping depiction of a Victorian treasure in just three months. She puzzle-pieced the cotton using a fusible appliquÈ technique that involves no overlapping layers. The surface is heavily machine quilted, with each tiny section sewn in matching thread. This quilt was accepted into the 2005 Houston International Quilt Festivalís Tactile Architecture challenge and won Excellence in Workmanship in Expressions: The Art Quilt Show 2006. It is traveling to Manchester (New Hampshire), Nashville, and Paducah through 2008.
