Gorgeous and deeply inviting tones of rich rusty browns, sparkling periwinkle blues and purple all shimmer in the evening twilight. Luminous painted leaves, have a three dimensional quality, quilted with custom applique thread play designs, and have a lovely glowing quality with lots of beautiful rich tones... floating to the ground in a light evening breeze, just before dusk settles in for the cool night ahead.

The leaves on this piece start with a piece of custom hand dyed fabric, and then each leaf was stenciled; hand painted with Shiva Paintstiks, an oil paint medium that is heatset, becoming completely machine washable, and durable. The leaves float on a rich brown autumn toned batik fabric, which has been creatively quilted with varying undulating and soft lines of quilting thread in brown and blues, to give this piece a 'floating in the wind' effect.

Finished with a multi-colored batik fabric border that is quilted with orange and green threads, to highlight more color depth into the piece. The borders are framed with metallic threads couched onto the surface at the border's edge and in the binding seam.

An original design; a gorgeous piece that will be a favorite not just for the Autumn season, but year round. This piece can also be hung if desired.

13" wide and 45" long. Hand signed. Original pattern, design and quilting by Leslie Vaskey McNeil of http://MarveLesArtStudios.blogspot.com More pictures can be made available by request!

This is all cotton, with polyester and cotton threads. I recommend a delicate wash cycle, or hand wash, and lay flat to dry. Press from the back with a medium iron and light water spritzing as needed.

Light setting in the park with a dusky feel to the woodland surrounding the trees as they are shedding their leaves. SEE MORE detailed pictures showcasing this quilt on my BLOG; the link here: http://marvelesartstudios.blogspot.com/2011/09/leave-it-beautiful-in-twilight.html
