Bermuda - A mini quilt show by Lynn Morrell

Before going to Bermuda, I checked on google to see if there were any quilt shops there. I did find reference to a quilt guild that has about 50 members, but no quilt shops. They must buy their quilt fabrics online I guess.

So when I got to Bermuda, I was pleased to stumble upon this one woman's quilt art display at the local Art Center. Her name is Lynn Morrell.

I think this blue themed charm wall hanging was one of my favorites. You can see she quilted it using various motifs that are very effective.

Have a look at some of her other work below.

I like this quilt as well, it's so colorful and these colors really look like the different colors of the houses I saw in Bermuda. Lots of soft candy colors.

These 2 small quilts were mounted on glass and hung on a string from the ceiling. I loved the dimension of this quilt, and yes, these look like some of the native plants in Bermuda.









The rest of these quilts look like they are part of a hands collection. I didn't notice any artist statement that explained all the hands, but I'm sure there was a story.

Many Thanks, Lynn Morrell, for giving me my quilt fix while in your Beautiful Bermuda!
