Wildflower Pattern Samples

WildFlowersI do believe Spring is here.  My Lupine is blooming and I will have Fireweed later in the Summer.  But right now, I have two gorgeous patterns to show you.    Lupine_Sample

For Lupine I used primarily My Hand Dyed Fabrics.  Light, Medium, and Dark Purple for the flower.  Light, Medium, Dark Green Hand Dyed and a Dark Green Hand Marbled for the Foliage.  Straw color Batiks for the grasses.  Scraps of White and Teal Radiance Silk/Cotton for the Dragonfly.  Light Blue Patina for the background and Dark Blue Batik for the Boarders.  Stay tuned for the quilting.

Fireweed_SampleFor Fireweed  The Background and Foliage is much the same, Light, Medium, Dark Green Hand Dyed Fabric and a Dark Green Hand Marbled for the Foliage.  Straw color Batiks for the grasses.  Light Blue Patina for the background and Dark Blue Batik for the Boarders.  The Fireweed Flower is done using my hand Dyed Pink and Radiance Silk/Cotton in White and Berry.    And stay tuned for the quilting.

I can’t wait to start quilting.  I found a new lighter weight fusible web in the middle of making samples for Lupine and Fireweed.  I really love it.  Quilting will be the final test.  And Yes, I have it on order and will let you know when it arrives.
