Bracken – fractal quilt by Rose Rushbrooke

Bracken was created for an exhibition, and book authored by Donna deSoto – Inspired by National Parks.

I chose the North Cascades park which is filled with bracken – a type of fern. A fern is a natural fractal. The colours are extracted from a photo.

The piece is 20″ square, hand stitched using both hand dyed and commercially printed cotton fabrics.

A book is available with pictures of all the quilts. The quilts are travelling around the USA as a touring exhibition at various venues.
