Technique: Hand Appliqued & Hand Quilted
Inspired by Baltimore Album quilts, the Grand Dame of applique quilts, Rita used the setting of the 19th Century Chintz Medallion quilts to create her Album of Roses. Carefully arranged flowers in baskets and cornucopias frame the center medallion flower wreath while doves and colorful birds give her graceful design an exuberant airy feel.
