Quilts - Rural Landscapes Calendar, Wall, Wyman & Son
The artist Bridget O'Flaherty along with her husband and two young children live in the countryside of Lanark County, just west of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Luscious green forests and rolling hillsides, as well as hundreds of lakeside vistas, surround Bridget's studio. These are the inspiration for many of Bridget's quilts.
There are thousands of beautiful landscapes to choose from throughout North America and many familiar scenes. The ones chosen in this calendar appealed to the artist. "Thread Painting" or "Free-form Embroidery" is used throughout these quilts to create even the smallest detail. A machine is used to embroider and the movement is controlled by Bridget, painting with thread. There are many spools of thread used, approximately two per quilt. Many of the border fabrics are hand-dyed. Traditional quilt patterns are used in some of the borders. This 2006 Wall calendar was published by Wyman & Son.
