Banksia in Winter
This quilt was made for Five Squared with tACTile and in response to Beth Miller's Banksia series. She has used hessian as a background, so I went one step further and used potato sacks. She had made images of Banksia in full flower, and another quilt where the Banksia was older and looking a bit tattered with the 'eyes' developing. I took it further again and thought of mine as a Winter Banksia - with leather leaves, and fully developed seed pods.
