Flora Bota’nica

 

One of the special exhibits at the MQX show in New Hampshire last week was Andrea Brokenshire’s “Flora Bota’nica.”

These quilts–and there were at least ten of them and I could have taken a picture of every single one–were spectacular.  I’ve seen a lot of quilts of flowers, but these are extraordinary.

Here’s one:

You can see many more of these amazing quilts if you google “images for Andrea Brokenshire quilts.”

Enjoy!

Quilting Information: The Four Seasons Banners From Italy

THE FOUR SEASONS BANNERS FROM ITALY

An Exhibition Sponsored by Aurifil Thread, Milan, Italy

The recent Machine Quilters Expo (MQX) show in Manchester, New Hampshire, exhibited 70 quilted banners made by the Casa Patchwork & Quilting group that represented the four seasons.  The banners spread out over 40 feet of exhibit space. Each member was  given a palette to create their own banner–which is why the banners  “hang together” so nicely.

Here is a video that sweeps through the banners so you can see their impact:

Here are some close-ups of “winter.”
