Marilyn Belford’s latest quilt is a likeness of contributor Rundy. Rundy often helps her with computer and handyman related problems, so she was quite familiar with his habits and features, though she did work from a photograph to make the quilt. If, like me, you are wondering what that plant is in the background, wonder no longer. It is entirely a figment of Marilyn’s imagination. In the original photo, Rundy is actually standing in a doorway. (Scroll down to see the original photo.) Even clicking on the image to see the detail, I bet you will find it as incredible as I did that the entire portrait is done with fabric and thread.
What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
