Technique: Hand Appliquéd, Hand Pieced & Hand Quilted
The traditional Lady of the Lake pattern is the only pattern known by only one name, after a poem by Sir Walter Scott published in 1810. A line in this love song " kind creeping shrubs of a thousand dyes...." inspired Rita to design a lush floral appliqué border of vining shrubs with calla lilies, lotus blossoms and layered water lilies that create " a scenery of a fairy dream...". The 5000 plus pieces of the quilt in a rainbow of colors seem to twinkle in this hand appliquéd, hand pieced and hand quilted work of art.
