Leaf Study #2

Leaf Study #2, 19" x 23" 

Leaf Study #2, detail
I have completed another Leaf Study piece, using Heide Stoll-Weber's hand-dyed cotton sateen as the background. Inspiration for this piece was a photo I took in November 2009 of some beautiful philodendron leaves in the atrium of Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans.  The quilting in the background is of the meander/puzzle type, with a suggestion of more philodendron leaves in the upper portion.

These are lovely, Martha! I love big leave philodendron and made a silk quilt a few years years ago inspired by them. It's on my website under Nature, called (surprise, surprise) Leaf Study II.
