When I was walking through Central Park, in New York City last year, I came upon a beautiful plant laden with brilliantly colored berries. I took a dozen or so photos. When I returned, I found out it was the PokeBerry, a less than popular invasive weed. Oh well, I thought it was gorgeous!
I have since been obsessed with working on this quilt, called Poke Salad Annie, after the song. (Just because I can name it anything I want.)
|Playing with a layout of the pieces I've created so far ~ by Jane LaFazio|
I've been creating one piece at a time, using a color scheme and theme. Here's what I've got so far.
I've been going through my stash, finding linen napkins, or bits of cloth that seem to work with my theme. This a 'fly by the seat of your pants' way to work, but it's the way I love to create.
My next step is to do some gelli printing, in this color scheme. to add some different elements to this quilt. I'll keep you posted!
