Maryte Collard – Blooming

Apple Blossom

My favorite time of the year is spring, especially the time when apple trees are covered by pink clouds of flowers. I tried to capture that in my quilt. I know I could do it differently and more realistically using a different technique but I love piecing and I am determined to stick to it. That makes color a main means of expression of my idea.

I used my own hand dyed cotton fabrics.
