Original Photographs Inspire QuiltGem Cards®
by Melissa Carroll

Created by Lancaster, PA artist Melissa Carroll, QuiltGem Greeting Cards begin with her original fine art photograph of a gem, rock or mineral from the extensive collection of her late father, John M. Ward. By manipulating the mineral's colors, textures and natural shapes, the artist "stitches" portions of detail from the photograph to create the repeated, quilt-inspired design to create the final art for QuiltGem Cards.
