One of the panels from Prairie Performance is entered in the Quilting Gallery's weekly contest. Today is the first for voting, which you can do up until midnight on Sunday.
Prairie Performance - 33"x 23"
This is one panel of twenty-five that makes up a whole landscape of prairie flowers indigenous to northern Illinois. It's created with mostly recycled materials, including old army blankets for batting. Each of the twenty-five panels are complete compositions that can stand alone.
Thought you may like to see a photo of the complete installation at the New Sherman Hospital in Elgin, Illinois.
