Here's a photo of a botany inspired quilt I made to be part of a quilt show that was organized by the Quilters' Guild of Brooklyn. The quilts will be on display at the Windsor Terrace Library, 160 East 5th Street Brooklyn, New York from January 4  through February 7, 2012.
The Opening Reception is Wednesday, January 4, 2012 from 6 - 7:30 p.m.
Here's the description of the show from the guild:
This array of 22 quilts is the result of our Guild’s Summer 2011 Challenge which was to design a 20” square based on the theme BOTANY. The challenge process offers quilters the opportunity to go beyond the familiar and comfortable. Here we present the very personal responses to the BOTANY theme in designs that have been inspired by poems, the mind’s eye, photos, nature’s tenacity, and quilters’ experiences. Just as varied are the different approaches to quilting - traditional, modern, abstract, realistic. They all draw upon the rich quilting vocabulary - assorted textiles, applique, embellishment, embroidery, painting, plus machine and hand stitching. 
If anyone is in the neighborhood, please come and introduce yourself!
