The blue background is a piece of one of my first hand painted fabrics, and I love the deep, multi-layered colors that set the tone for the pink and mango colored flower (also hand painted fabrics of mine) "posing" in a bed of spring flowers after a cool, wet morning rain.
This ORIGINAL "MarveLes" design features my hand-dyed fabrics of 100% Kona cottons. For quilting, I use only the highest quality Egyptian extra long staple cotton and high sheen tri-lobal polyesters from Superior Thread Company.
Another favorite company of mine, MOUNTAIN COLORS (a local Montana Co that dyes their own yarns) helped to provide additional texture in the garden when I couched their yarns into the grassy garden area. Wonderfully thick and glitzy navy metallic thread,(to emulate a rain-soaked sky), and lots of variegated thread in purples and moody blues are quilted throughout the sky fabric in a geometric triangular pattern. Wool and Beads add a color and dimension to the posy center.
Smaller red flowers' petals have a gathered and 'puffed' look, and additional white dainty 'tip-toe' flowers from white satin and yellow wool fabric add contrast and interest to the spring garden, all sparkling in the aftermath of the early morning rain storm.
The hand-applied binding is a beautiful print which accents the bit of red and orangey colors of the piece, and frames it without further detracting from the simplicity of the piece. Additional hand-dyed orange yarn in couched next to the binding in a deep red adds additional texture and interest.
