Here is another photo of an Orlando version of Lotus:
So elegant. Thank you, thank you Orlando stitcher for sharing.
And with the photo came an explanation of the Orlando-Michigan connection. The maker of this quilt is a member of a quilting group in Orlando and has a sister in Michigan. They take turns suggesting group projects. In this case, her sister suggested making Lotus. The project is in progress. We can expect to see a group photo when the Lotus project culminates. I'm looking forward to it.
