Completed Fiber Art Wallhanging

I used some of the fabric I dyed a few weeks ago and designed this art quilt.  The background fabric looks very much like water to me.  I used some of the orange/yellow cotton to make the large leaf.  Commercial fabrics were used on the small leaves and for the backing.  I hand stamped some maple leaves onto the background fabric before machine quilting the whole piece.  Title:  Leaves III
I also like this turned on it's side with the large leaf to the left.
Your comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Results of Fabric Dyeing

I enjoyed dyeing some fabric this week and I'm quite pleased with the results.

I also have some beautiful fabric with bright yellows.  I dyed a large piece of fabric with green and I expect that will show up in my work very soon.

Yesterday I "played" with some of the fabric and have come up with a couple of test quilts.

I'm not sure if I'm going to make this quilt exactly like this but it's in the planning stages.

Until next time.
