Margaret, a dear friend and member of our FiberWorks group passed away a few years ago, much too soon. She was an avid quilter and left behind a huge stash of fabric and several unfinished projects. A few members took some of them home to finish. I took a bundle of leaf prints on a tan and white fabric. There were a lot of them in orange, green, tan and brown. There was a lot of the background fabric, too. They had been languishing in my studio for awhile because I couldn't get excited about the colors. But last week I took them out and started playing with them on my design wall.
I went through my batiks and found a few that I thought would work. I didn't have enough of one of them and decided to use several. Since the leaves are different colors, I thought that the mixed colors of the sashing would be fine. I do like the way it looks. It looks darker at the bottom because of the lighting.
I had just enough background fabric to make borders. Now to quilt it! I'll show you when it's finished.
I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
What a lovely tribute to your friend!
