I've had formatting problems with this post -- just ignore the weird spacing, etc.!The Fiberexplorations group met on Monday night to reveal our quilts for the Architecture Challenge. Most of us still have a bit more work to do before these pieces are completely finished.
Here they are, beginning with Deb's pieces. Yes, she made two, both featuring arches, which are key elements in architecture (and highly visible on the Ladd and Bush building). Each quilt holds special, personal meaning to her, not evident to other viewers.

|Wool applique by Chris|
|Scrollwork freize (?)|
|Joanna's untitled (and unfinished) purple piece|
Torrie and Maureen used the fluted freize as their design inspiration, as did I in my first (unsuccessful) attempt. At least I think that's what this exterior architectural element is called:

Nov. 28 update: A clearer photo of Lisa's quilt is below. It features men's shirting fabrics and zippers, in a Courthouse Square block arrangement. Coins coated with resin embellish this piece, which brings to mind a gentleman banker in his Brooks Brothers suit, button-down shirt, tie, and well-shined shoes. (Personally, the zippers made me think of two other bank-related items: a safe-deposit box and a bank vault, both of which are "zipped up" tightly for security and hold coins!)
