"This is a tribute to the courageous men of the U.S. Coast Guard, who rescued my son from a fierce storm off the coast of Maine. The waves in the front are done in Waldoboro 3-D with many novelty yarns to portray the foam and spray of the huge 40’ rogue waves. In order to make the gray sky and sea prettier, I dyed over many shades of aqua, teal, and blue. These complements also help to make the peach Coast Guardsman (focal point) and buffeting helicopter more noticeable. This is my favorite rug."
- Grace Collette, Celebration Hall of Fame 2018
