This week's puzzle, Hydrangea, is quite a large quilt at 100" x 97".  It was created by Velda Newman in 1989 using hand applique and hand quilting.  Velda used hand-dyed and commerical fabrics as well as discharge-painted leaves.  She added another unique touch by including a contrasting red edging and black and white binding.  Velda makes very few quilts, but all are masterpieces of art and design.  

Look for Velda in the upcoming 900 series where she'll be teaching painting on fabric.
