Printed Fabric Bee Challenge: Forest Floor

This month’s Printed Fabric Bee’s queen Carol Eaton chose as our challenge “The Forest Floor.” We could choose whatever colors we wanted to use.

Here is the collection of giveaway fabric. See giveaway information below.


I started with a piece of fabric I had low immersion dyed with turquoise and orange.

forestfloor3I wanted to add some highlights, so I stamped a few more ferns on the fabric with Jacquard Lumiere Metallic Copper.

forestfloor4I love Jacquard Lumiere. They are just so pretty. I used them on that stole I made for Ange.

And here is the finished piece. I really thought about adding some spots of silver as I did in my practice pieces, but decided against it. I really liked the piece as it was.

Here is my giveaway 6 x 6 piece.
