Lynn Peck-Collins entered Floribunda (85" x 85") in the Paducah quilt show in 2017. It was displayed in the Large Quilts - Stationary Machine Quilted category. Wikipedia says the meaning of Floribunda is:

Floribunda (Latin for "many-flowering") a modern group of garden roses that was developed by crossing hybrid teas with polyantha roses.

The techinques used are listed as: Fused Appliqué, Hand Appliqué, Machine Appliqué, Decorative Stitching, Hand Embroidery, Free-Motion Quilting, Piped Edging, and Trapunto. For us, Floribunda means a quilt that is beautifully made and quilted. We really love the extra color in the corner borders. Do you see it?
