Thank you for choosing Andy Goldsworthy for inspiration for the FFFC. I used disperse dyeing on "faux silk" polyester with just a simple bit of quilting and cropped it digitally. No binding on it yet. I may add another round of quilting between the leaves with a loopy loop in it. Not sure though, seems too frivolous for such a formal design. If I repeat this design on another piece of cloth, I plan to move the very first leaf on the paper pattern so it is more in line. Or I might cut it a little smaller. Refining the design is easy in disperse dyeing. There's a process photo on my blog.
Looking forward to your comments. Feels really good to participate again after sitting out a few months.
