Green


Well, not many of the materials I found made it into the final piece.  There's a few of the fabrics, and two of the threads round the outside, but the paint, silk cocoons and Markel (Shiva) paintstik fell by the wayside.  I couldn't dis-associate green from vegetation in my mind, so in the end I decided to just go for it.  A suggestion of a leaf, made using reverse fused appliqué, a technique I had somehow never tried before.  Very simple, but I just love the spiral shape.

  1. It's simplicity is its success, Linda. Love the flowing lines. How on earth did you manage to place all those different fabrics behind? Hilary

    PS Both Lindas have used reverse applique...

  9. Just by using curved line and two other shapes, you have achieved a piece that conveys simple elegance. The variety of colors and quilting add the extra punch to take this to a very sophisticated creation without being fussy. Love it!!
