The Northern Wildflowers Collection
Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, author & artist Gina Mohammed has created a whimsical series of 25 stained glass wildflower patterns which she calls The Northern Wildflowers Collection. The collection includes favourites like the Black-eyed Susan, Dutchman's Breeches, Water Lily, and White Trillium, along with a few exotics like the Pale Corydalis and Calypso (Fairy Slipper) Orchid.
The wildflower patterns are aimed at stained glass artisans, but they can be adapted easily for use as quilt patterns too. "They're caricatures of the plants," says Mohammed. "I tried to capture their most interesting features."
The Northern Wildflowers Collection is published electronically by Candlenut Books. Individual wildflower patterns are offered for sale on-line at the Rainbowcraft Stained Glass Art web site (www.rainbowcraft.ca) and delivered by email. Pattern kits will be available in hardcopy from selected stained glass supply shops, and the entire Collection is available on CD/DVD.
Further information can be obtained by contacting Candlenut Books. The Northern Wildflowers Collection can be viewed on the Rainbowcraft web site (free sample available).
