    Not sure of the manufacturer of the fabric, but it comes with that gradation on the fabric. Ill have to see if i can take a picture of the fabric " before" it was cut. The purple curvy checker board back ground is the weaving. Nothing on the background is sewn together. All heat n bond.

    Aha! Now, I understand. I have been sitting here looking at your quilt and wondering, where is the weaving? Glad you cleared that up. Very interesting quilt, and I was also wondering how you got the fade-out on the bottom portion, now I know that part too.

    Love it! Isn't it fun to let loose and be so creative - outside the box?

    Really great, I expecially like the way the leaves are clustered. Sometimes the single ones just seem sparce. I don't think I would change a thing with the leaves.

    I love the way the yellow of the flowers just POP! Sorry - I don't have any suggestions on where to change or add the leaves. I think you've done a fabulous job as is.

    What an outstanding job you did on this beautiful quilt! I have to learn more about this weaving technigue.

    And where did you find that beautiful dragonfly? Or did you make it?

    Love the overall look of this project! Since you asked about the leaves, I think it needs one/some on the right side too.

    I bought some fabric that had some really pretty (color wise) bugs on it. There were several pretty dragon flies printed on the fabric. I picked one, cut the dragon fly out of the fabric, added the wire and then ironed fabric to the back and cut it out again. I didn't have any wire in the house thin enough but thought that the wire that is sometimes found in ribbon would work. I had some of that left over from Christmas. Sure enough, worked like a charm!

    I went and looked to see if I had cut the salvage off yet. I hadn't. If anyone is interested the fabric line is McKenna Ryan's Silent Inspirations style # PN014. I think my fabric color is Claret? Hard to tell online. Batik's Plus has it on their website. $14 per yard - yikes :-0 I think I might get the fabric that would make a great water back ground and do an ocean scene.

    While waiting for the picture to load (it's a bad day for my computer) I visualized a neat, traditional checkerboard-type weaving with maybe a kitty applique on it...cute, but just not my taste! I LOVE this!!!! The off-kilter checkerboard background makes the sunflowers and dragonfly just POP---and I love the fern border too. Something about green and purple for me.....
