A Passion for Purple by Andrea Brokenshire is an award-winning quilt featuring a beautiful flowering clematis.

As you will see, Andrea draws her inspiration from the natural world.“I try to express the essence of a flower with fabric. The curve of a petal, the vibrancy of color and the diversity of flora to me is sexy... beautiful. For me, the creative process is a journey as essential as breathing. An expression of self. I am a professed technique junkie and always try to push myself to learn new skills.” (http://www.artslant.com/global/artists/show/276016-andrea-brokenshire)

Karen spent one year creating and applying the appliqué to Majestic Mosaic and then Renae spent a year doing the machine quilting. All that work paid off as it won Best of Show at AQS Paducah in 2015. This was the second time that Karen and Renae collaborated. They won BOS previously with their quilt, "Fiesta Mexico." (Click here to see a Zoom Quilt of "Fiesta Mexico.")
