Design Concept

In the fall of 2001 we took many walks through the fields next to our house after the beans and corn had been harvested. What remained standing in the fields were the dried skeletons of the velvet leaf or button weed plant. I pickedone of the seed pods, scanned it on my flat bedscanner and enlarged it so all the details could be seen. The design for this quilt is based on the enlarged seed pod. I have used many variegated, earth toned fabrics in the seed pod, against a sky of graduated turquoise.
