Machine and hand applique. Based on a Pinterest photo of fall leaves and red berries. Rather than try to re-createthe actual color variations of the leaves, I used different fabrics and changed thered berries to blue!
Machine pieced background; machine appliqued vase and flowers. I have a good supply of floral upholstery fabrics, so I decided to make a flowerarrangement with them.
Machine pieced background; hand appliqued elements; hand embroidery. Developed during a Heidi Parkes workshop, I was inspired by all the decaying barns evident all over the Midwest.
Hand dyed “paper cloth” for background, machine appliqued; hand embroidered. I would see these beautiful colors in the early morning of winter as the sun started to come up.
