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)
