Budding

Budding
Hand dyed silks, cotton sateen and various cottons, fused, machine quilted, mounted on painted wood panel. 11x14" $100 Email me. SOLD.
I had been saving that piece of silk for. ever. and finally decided to use it. I cut it in half first and then inserted a piece of sateen with vibrant red hot colors. What am I doing? Ackkk? But I just kept building and decided after a while... that I had an exciting background! Gulp. 
What goes good with orange-y red? Purple. So strips of purple were applied and then the dots of color and voila! It's amazing how bits of fabric can make me so happy.
