Botanical Quilts Yahoo Group

I've started a new Yahoo Group called Botanical Quilts. I'm inviting anyone who would like to discuss quilts with any kind of botanical theme to join! Your quilts certainly don't have to be like mine - we would welcome applique, pieced or mixed media. You don't have to be a designer either. Show us your projects, show us your garden photos and share your work!

Nasturtium, Janet Rice-Bredin, 2000

This is gorgeous! Nasturtium is such a great flower. How large is this piece?

Thanks Juanita!

I haven't quilted it yet (can you see the pins at the top?). It measures 48"w x 40"h. I'm going to quilt it heavily with some lovely threads I got from Superior Threads, so it will shrink quite a bit then.

It's an Alaska Nasturtium with variegated leaves. I curve-machine pieced the whole thing.
