In 2014, Flora Joy's quilt Frame of Mind won Viewer's Choice in Houston. It was a three-dimensional quilt that switched from Mother Teresa, to Oprah, to Jackie Kennedy, depending on how you looked at the quilt.

Well now she's done it again with another three-dimensional quilt, Pop-Up Stories, which won the Judging Floor Staff Favorite award at Road to California 2020. This time blocks are unsnapped to reveal different "stories". Flora used a number of different textiles to complete the quilt, including everything from fishing line to Peltex®, and upholstery fabric to faux velveteen. It's quite a story in itself.

What a wonderful idea. This would be perfect for a family to have family time or make it towards younger children to encourage story telling. I love it.

Flora's creativity is awesome. Her ideas are unique. She has great skill in implementing her concepts. I loved the first quilt showing different faces as one moved around the quilt.
