In a Sea of Hydrangeas

This piece is sold

Width: 124 cm
Height: 99 cm

These blue hydrangeas grow in my garden and flower through the late summer and autumn. The perfect background for them was a hand-dyed piece of cotton inspired by the colours of the tropical sea. I have used hand-dyed and commercial cottons, sheers, rayon and cotton threads, and cotton batting. I have used a turned edge machine applique technique to complete the picture.

Here is a closeup of the quilting details:
