Color provided by nature…

FuschiaLeaves-03

It's not just that the fuschia (from light to dark) is beautiful – it is that it is mixed with the different shades and values of green and brown/gray. Great colors for a quilt.

The ombre shading of the banana leaf (below) really stands out in this photo. It's an interesting idea – to use this sort of shading on one motif in a composition to draw attention to it.

  1. Have you seen that funky blue vine yet??? I wish I remembered the name, but it really is BLUE…..Kind of a turquois-y shade. We saw it at a pineapple plantation on Kauai. You will know what I’m talking about if you see it!
