Burano is what is called a sliced quilt or fractured quilt. That means it was constructed from a photo or image that was "sliced into sections". In our case, the image was divided into 12 equal parts, 8"x 10". This was a group project done by members of Miami Art Quilters; six of us participated so each of us had 2 sections of the image to reproduce. The chosen technique was raw edge applique. After all the sections were complete Michaele Shapiro had the daunting task of fitting them all together and Judy Momenzadeh quilted it. This piece was included in the Tactile Architecture exhibit at the International Quilt Festival in 2009. The other four members who worked on this piece are Pat Helmcamp, Elizabeth Janowitz, Anita Thompson and Stacy West. This piece is available for purchase, email inquiries to or leave a comment.
