Here's another beautiful block from Jinny's Puzzle this week. Do you know what it is called? Play the game and find out.
"Summer Wind" was the winner of the Baby Lock Master Award for Innovative Artistry at IQA Houston 2014.
"The strong and hot colors of Ann Bocek's oil painting inspired me to dye my own silk and form the quilt, using a great number of colors and shades. I was also challenged to reproduce in fabric the painting's hair movement with the available textile techniques and the quilting."
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)
