Ciao Bella Limoncello by Michele Muska

This month’s puzzle spotlights a quilt titled Ciao Bella Limoncello made by Michele Muska of Enfield, Connecticut for the 2009 Quilt Alliance contest and auction, Crazy for Quilts.

Materials and processes: Silks, cottons, glass beads & felted postcards, sterling silver and glass enamel button, silk bias tape ruching and grosgrain ribbon flowers.

Artist’s Statement

When my son returned from Sicily he made Limoncello from our friend’s organic Meyers lemons. He had to peel many lemons and go through a long process to get to the end result. I helped him strain the citrus libation several times and now it sits in my freezer for special occasions. This little block evokes the brightness and contrast that this special brew and experience represents to me.
