Colorado Coneflower

Colorado Coneflower

This is my quilt that was selected as a finalist in the Quilting Arts Reader's Challenge.  I took the photo of the coneflower in 2009.  I manipulated it in Photoshop Elements, printed it on printer fabric, then thread sketched and quilted it.  It is 10" square.

You can check the June/July 2015 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine and their website (quiltingdaily.com) to see all of the finalists' work.

I forgot to ask, What is the size of this quilt? What does Thread stitched mean?
