Stained Glass and Quilting!

The Pitcher Plant is the official plant of Newfoundland Labrador. 'As a carnivorous plant, it gets its nourishment from insects that are trapped and drown in a pool of water at the base of its tubular leaves. These plants, with their wine and green flowers, are found on bogs and marshes around the province.' Other interesting facts about this plant HERE.  

Don completed this beautiful stained glass Pitcher Plant yesterday. He's been posting his work on Face Book under CSE Glass.

My friend, Judith, created these two beautiful quilted wall hangings of the Pitcher Plant. She enjoys working with fabrics: quilting, hand and machine embroidery, fabric dyeing . . . you name it, she has probably tried it. In fact, the light green fabric on the 1st photo, was dyed and rusted by Judy. The dark fabric is a commercial fabric by Carol Breyer Fallert. The fabric in the 2nd one is unknown.
Permission was given to show these photos.
