Using some shibori fabric
The green fabric is sateen that I dyed using some avacado colored dye. It has a nap to it, and I deliberately placed some of it going one way and some the other, giving the color difference shown.
I'm still quilting some of the individual lines on the leaves using both brown and pink thread. Good way to spend the day today, inside in the AC instead of out in my 120+ degree garage doing monoprinting or dyeing.
