Again, both are quilted by Cory Allender.
My eye is naturally drawn to Cory's work, and those she collaborates with.
Rock Garden pieced by Patti Van Oordt
Pattern from the book Fresh Cut Flowers by Lis Schwartz and Stephen Seifert.
(I found the book for a reasonable price on Amazon.com)
Patti did an absolutely amazing job on this quilt!
Patti wrote "This is the most time consuming quilt I've ever pieced, and Cory spent an equal amount of time quilting, painting, embellishing and generally doing her thing."
I really was speechless as I stood and gazed at this quilt.
