FRACTURED LEAVES




When the colour was revealed I immediately thought of Autumn (there are a lot of tones in the picture) and although it was at the end of February which is one of our hottest times of the year, I knew that by the end of May we would be in Autumn.  I have had other committments and had to put this on the back burner for a while but when the leaves started dropping from the trees I gathered some of them up, had fun drawing them and then constructing my background.  I thought I would make it more interesting by cutting the leaves up and arranging them differently, but not so that no one could recognise them as leaves!  I had fun, which is what it is all about.

  1. The quilting lines give real movement to the leaves, Patricia!

  2. Patricia, it was worth putting on the back-burner. The colours, lines and shapes are beautiful. I could happily live with the piece - it's very peaceful. I'm so pleased you had fun with it.

  4. I too enjoy the colour combinations, very soothing, but then with the movement of the leaves on top giving a delightful contrast.

  7. I'm late coming to this set of challenges so have made sure that i look at a piece before reading the comments now I find that it's all been said. This is a great piece your use of the split leaf shapes and the quality of the quilting gives this piece a real dynamic appeal.

  8. I like the abstract, and the split leaves with the bold quilting

  9. Your fabrics are beautiful, they must be your own hand dyes.
