Shades of Spring/Brown + Blue Quilties: Fiona Brockie

Fiona Brockie, from Aberdeen Scotland is at it again! She is participating in yet another swap of mine -- this makes number 8 here with me, at creative swaps, wow! I really admire Fiona's way of combining fabric and paper with other mixed media embellishments. The quiltie shown here is a great example! Click on it for greater detail. I love all her background stitching, free-form style and how she used things in her composition that mean "spring" to her -- Fiona writes: "plants & butterflies, and changing from warm winter woolens to chic springtime girlie clothes. Eggs symbolize Easter and the sense of renewal with each new year and a hope of accomplishment & achievement. In fact: the blue brown theme just makes me think of bird's eggs!" Thank you so much Fiona, especially for the extra quiltie for me! : )

You can see more photos of Fiona's quilties on her flickr account - enjoy!
