Orchid Splendor

In the past few years my husband and I have spent time on various Hawaiian islands where we have photographed hundreds of stunning orchid species. This dazzling orchid spray, an unnamed variety, was discovered in the corner of a small, shaded gazebo on Maui.

I inked, painted and machine embroidered a likeness of the blossoms on silk before machine appliquing them to the background-----thus creating Orchid Splendor.

Orchid Splendor was exhibited at Quilt Canada 2012 and displayed on the front cover of the National Juried Show's catalogue.
