Orange Fan Fungi

5 X 14
This was fun challenge as I have always had a fascination with mushrooms and other fungi. Betty provided us with some great links for inspiration.

I chose blue/orange as my complimentary color scheme and quilted the blue to represent an old log. I used twin needles to make the ridges on the cups and some metallic turquoise paint to add some highlight to the centers. I did not meet the abstract or stylized portion of the challenge but enjoyed the process and tried different techniques.

Comments are welcomed and appreciated. Thanks Betty for the fun and interesting challenge. Nice variety of quilts has been posted to date.

Pam this is such a pretty color combination and those fungi look so pretty... hope they are not poison! ha. Great job on that blue tree... and the fungi 'cups' are great.

I think you actually did get the It's interesting that three of us, so far, have done the tree fungus theme, all different, all recognizable as what they are but certainly not a realistic treatment.

Very striking in it's simplicity. Nice way to do the dimensional mushrooms.
