    Clematis and Columbine Flowers

    I thought these two flowers were made for each other as I love green and purple together. They are flowers from my own garden and that is always fun to work from my own pictures. I plan on using this piece for a medallion in the center with borders of vines and a large clematis blossom in the corners. I probably won't get that much done but I have big plans anyway. It measures 24 x 36 inches so would be a nice size for a medallion.

    Absolutely gorgeous! The colors are stunning and I can hardly wait to see the entire pieced finished. It is already a work of art.

    Wow, reading your post, I thought top picture would be the shot of your garden, then the medallion you made - scrolled down and realized that the top picture was the only one, and it is the medallion - it will be a phenomenal center however you decide to finish it - you have such a special talent, I am in awe of it and you!

    Gorgeous, gorgeous block, I can't wait to see what you do with it! Those flowers look so real, were the clematis petals enhanced with paint or did you have a fabric that you fussy cut?

    Amazing! I hope someday to be able to produce something as lovely. I also thought this was a picture at first. Great work! Would love to see more pictures as you progress towards your end goal. The description you give of your planned end product is wonderful. Can't wait to see it!

    Same here. At first I thought "Oh, what a pretty photograph of her flowers. I can't wait to see how she imagines them" & then BAM! It wasn't a picture afterall... it was your quilt block. Wow wow wow! Your work just boggles my mind! You are beyond talented!

    I hand dye all of my fabric and then enhance with dye pens. The fabric for the clemats was dyed in three seperate dye baths to get the right color.

    The depth you have given your flowers is amazing. It looks as if you could reach in and touch them.

    I thought it was a photograph at first, but it's even more beautiful.

    Your colors are so spot on, that it was hard for me to tell whether those flowers were real or photos. Then centers of your columbines are just "perfect". You do such beautiful work. Always a treat to see what you're working on next.
