Deb's Garden

To me Flora was the hardest challenge yet! even though the subject was very broad. I pondered over it for ages as I stared out of my sewing room window. Then I realised the answer was staring me right in the face! I went into the garden and picked a leaf off every bush/plant/tree I could see. I then traced around each one and using some hand dyed green fabrics appliqued them to an aubergine coloured background. I did some hand quilting with thread dyed by Heather Ridley. (Leaves used were lemon scented gum, passion fruit, mint, banksias, pine needles, tomato and various other gums.)
