Image Statement: My quilts have become more three-dimensional over time. With this piece, I embraced the sculptural form wholeheartedly. Magnolia Grandiflora's flower is white but the bees see it in purples and blues. It was a joy to diverge and allow my love of color to flow into a virginal white flower. Art of the State Pennsylvania 2021.
