Sincere apologies to the quilters for the poor quality of the pictures. I took them in haste and wasn't thinking of posting them but the pieces are so lovely and relate well to different aspects of gardening that I changed my mind.
I know nothing about quilting but greatly admire the talent of those who can make them and the beautiful products they produce. My eldest sister and her daughter are avid quilters and I'm lucky enough to posses some of their work.
In the same way that some gardeners hoard plants, (not that we know any people like that right?) some quilters hoard fabric. (Just saying is all. No, we will not talk about my glass stash!)
It's quite understandable as fabric is beautiful stuff, is much less dense than glass therefore easier to store. In addition, fabric requires no watering, potting up, pruning, et cetera.
Hortlandia attendees got to vote on their favorite quilt.
A difficult choice as each of the entries was beautiful in a different way.
This one gets extra points for including the botanical name of the plant!
I ended up not voting as, loving them all, I couldn't choose a favorite.
How about you, do you have a favorite of these entries and what makes it your choice?
