Leaf Party! detail 2

15 x 15 inches. Made for QuiltArt Quinceanera 15 year celebration project.
Handpainted fabric using Setacolor paints. Leaf Printed with Lumiere paint. Machine quilted.

I selected leaves from 15 different plants that grow locally (not all of them native), and sunprinted them using a background of 15 colors of Setacolor paint, and lots of kosher salt. I also overprinted about 15 leaves with metallic copper Lumiere paint, and machine quilted with rainbow cotton thread. The leaves look to me like they are having a celebration, including lots of confetti (made with the salt effect) and many bright colors. I have gotten much more interested in surface design and dyeing since joining the list about five years ago.
