Linda Anderson's quilt, Velvet Flowers, recreates a lovely scene of women in the village of Santa Rosa, Oaxaca, Mexico, as they work on embroidering hand-stitched flowers on velvet. They chat back and forth as they create the style of dress worn by Frida Kahlo. Linda writes, "Flowers continue today to dance across the rich clothing on the solid women on this land." A beautiful sentiment for an extraordinary quilt.
Linda's quilt won the Gammill Master Award for Contemporary Artistry at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018.
