See Paula Nadelstern's Modern Bridge Quilt, "Kaleidoscopic XXXII: My Brooklyn Bridge"
We've finished our series on the Modern Bridges from around the world that would inspire quilters. Now let's take a look at quilts that actually were inspired by bridges. Our first is from TQS guest and master of the kaleidoscope quilt Paula Nadelstern. Paula's quilt, Kaleidoscopic XXXII: My Brooklyn Bridge, was inspired by a photo of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City and is a part of her kaleidoscope series of quilts.

Here's some more information on Paula's quilt from artnet:
"In her Kaleidoscope XXXII: My Brooklyn Bridge (2006), the kaleidoscopic effect is limited to the sky. She has added hand-couched (or hand-twisted) cords for the cables. They project a three-dimensional feel that enriches the already active surface. Appropriately, it was made for a Manhattan Quilters Guild traveling exhibit called "Metrotextural.""
