"Flora Australis" a quilt by Denise Griffiths
Flora Australis by Denise Griffiths was featured in the In Full Bloom exhibit at the Houston Quilt Festival in 2018.
Denise found inspiration in the flora of the Australian Bush with its abundance of flowers and bushes. Hand embroidered, machine pieced, appliquéd, painted and quilted, she added one more little touch to give her colorful flowers more impact. To contrast the wonderful bursts of color throughout, Denise used "a background of black and white to make the colors pop more."
