PRINTED BY NATURE

After shuffling around a limited number of eco-printed fabric pieces, this piece finally came together.  Each botanical printed silk noil and cotton section is surrounded by strips of rust dyed silk noil.

To prevent distracting from the subtle prints, the metallic machine quilting was kept very simple.

PRINTED BY NATURE  31" X 27"
Eco-printed leaves/ferns/pine needles processed in iron water on silk noil and cotton.  Machine quilted.

Lovely- and the metallic thread was a great idea to accent this soft look.

Beyond beautiful. So soft and ethereal yet not bland. A pleasing balance. Those eco-prints are incredibly beautiful. I suppose I've seen many of them as you posted pictures right after making them, but I had no idea of the breath of images, so delicate, so compelling when grouped in this way. A botanical triumph! Yes, I'm gushing... ;-)

Great little art quilt. I have done some eco dying but then struggled to use them. I might just need more fabric to work with.
