Recapitulata (Echo Flower)

By Lisa Binkley

I enjoy creating one-of-a-kind, stylized botanical quilts and then giving them their own species name. “Recapitulata (Echo Flower)” seemed like an appropriate official and common name for a flower form that repeatedly restates or echoes the form in its center. Once I began the hand work on this quilt, it very much took on a life of its own, which was fun to witness. Machine appliqued and embroidered; hand beaded and embroidered. 23" x 23"
