My piece, Hydrangea, is heading to Albuquerque, New Mexico to be ready for the auction.
During the past several months, I photographed plants on my daily walks. Using iPad apps, I altered some favorites, then printed some on fabric using my inkjet printer. For this small quilt, I selected the hydrangea photo for the focal point and pieced alternating squares of 2 colorways of the succulent print. I framed the hydrangea with a green solid to separate the image based prints. Outline quilting and subtle fill quilting enhance the hydrangea with emphasis and give it dimension.
