What are you most proud of? Learning how to create lighter colors on darker fabric. I had to get creative with mixing silk dye, clear glue and mica powders. Gives the leaf a subtle coloration and a lot of shimmer.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to make mistakes... some of my most complimented work has been from figuring out how to fix something I messed up!

Super cool. Love the simplicity and yet complexity at the same time.

Thank you! That is exactly the kind of quilting I like best... (My piecing skills are adequate, but I won't win any serious competition with them!)

Beautiful! Looks time-consuming, but definitely worth the effort...I think you're onto something potentially viral and addictive (in a good way, of course!)

Thank you! I really like small projects, so I can afford to spend a little more time practicing my free-motion quilting. :)

Stunning! Love the leaves. I red your profile - check the link to your Etsy shop. Probably something missing - gave me back an error. I found by search engine. Your works are great :)
