Artist’s Statement:
I am drawn to miniatures and Baltimore Album quilts, so this miniature silk ribbon design by Bonnie Browning (permission granted) was the inspiration I needed. I changed some of her flowers. I used 4mm and 7mm silk ribbon, embroidery thread, and perle cotton. I love hand quilting—the cross-hatching in the centre was done at 1/4" intervals. The outer undulating quilted feather border repeats the shape of the embroidered grape border.
