This technique can be used in so many ways. "Nature Images - Hydrangeas" used real petals from Hydrangea flowers to create the quilt below.
This next piece "Natures Images - Summer" used real leaves mixed in with fabric appliques.
In "Natures Images - Daylilies", real daylilies were used as a transfer to fabric; the rest of the piece used hand-dyed fabric.
The flower on the right is the real thing" - left is hand-dyed fabric; both mix well together.
Natures Images - Country Walls" used real ivy transferred to silk. The rocks were made from muslin and canvas which I painted and stuffed in areas to give an uneven-ness to the surface, more like a rock.
