Flora’s Statement

There are only TWO FABRIC PIECES in this quilt top,
and they are joined together with only ONE SEAM.
Back story: One day while I was waiting in my car
for a traffic light to change, I gazed at a large revolving
billboard that changed about every ten seconds
from ONE image, to ANOTHER image, to a THIRD image,
then back to the beginning. That process intrigued me,
and as I tried to sleep that night, a “quilt” that changed
images began formulating in my mind. It took several
years to work through HOW this concept could be
transformed into a quilt — and then I had to try to
master free-motion quilting, thread painting, and
trapunto. [What FUN!] After several attempts with
numerous samples, this quilt finally emerged.

Quilt size: 32” x 35”
