On a trip to Sarasota Florida, I went to a tourist area called Long Boat Key.  While there I saw this restaurant that had a sweeping brick staircase and a lot of wrought iron accents.  This scene was accented by a beautiful bougainvilea vine that draped across the top of the building.

I recreated this beautiful scene in a pieced quilt.  The bougainvillea has cotton fabric strips twisted to accentuate the vine and give it added texture. The vines’ flowers are made with appliquéd fabric snippets. Leaves in the foreground from another plant dangle loosely in front of the restaurants second story. A small bit of greenery in the planter also protrudes from the scene.
