I called this piece 'Summer Garden' because of the rows of different textures and colours. It reminded me of when I was a child and my Mom had a big vegetable garden filled with various rows of colourful vegetables.
I loved adding the many different textures using a variety of fabrics, ribbons, yarns, beads and embroidery. I especially had fun doing the row of colonial knots!
The background quilt on which I mounted it is hand dyed fabric that I made this summer while some of my friends were up at the cottage with us. I've quilted it with random diagonal lines using a turquoise metallic thread to give it a bit of sparkle.
