autumn daydreams ~ version one…

MarveLes Art Studios Art and Collage Quilts, Blogs 12 Comments

hello and good morning ~

autumn ~ truly a golden time isn’t it?  

a season chock-full of delights, highlights ~ and perhaps even ~ insights.  it changes every day.  and it’s definitely full of inspiration and blessings for me. 

it also heightens my tactile sense, as i love to touch leaves, study the colors, the decay, the lines, shape and forms. to pause, and really … really… look at what is right in front of me.

and i take that inspiration to the studio, to blend, play and experiment with the fall glow that only a hand-dyed fabric sings to me about.

from the hands of vicki welsh

to the bed of my sewing machine.

those blue skies and orange leaves…almost “leaf” me breathless {bad pun, but so appropriate!} lol  

that blue and orange makes me real happy.  and then… a little bit of brown for the quilting outside of the feathers… not so much.   {just sayin’}

in hindsight?  perhaps a light orange/coral/peach… hmm?

the backing. i love beautiful backing fabrics that accent the front, and also highlight the quilting.

and i found the perfect {and a favorite} hand-dyed rayon yarn to couch into the seam of the binding.  it’s luscious.  tactile.  and the color is delicious.  

thanks for coming alongside me in my autumn daydreams, and stitching seams!

version two coming up in the next post…

bless your day!
