"Cone Flower, Queen of the Prairie"
25.5" x 31"
Completed in 2000
The inspiration for this quilt came from me responding to the graceful,
elongated petals of a pale purple cone flower, swaying in the summer breeze. I was inspired to capture
it in an art quilt. In some ways, this is a spiritual quilt for me, for when I see something as beautiful as a cone flower,
I know all is right with God.
The quilt has been on the cover of "The Professional Quilter", and the Missouri Prairie Journal." It has won several awards,
and has been chosen as viewers choice. A representative of the National Park Service contacted me to exhibit the quilt in
the summer of 2005 as part of a Lewis and Clark Expedition display.
