FFFC #24 How Does Your Garden Grow?

The hand has healed enough that I dived headlong into this months challenge. Our challenge was to do an abstract of our garden.
My deck is abloom with burgundies and pinks. I dug out my old Quilt Art books and re read the articles by Liz Berg. Very good information. Using this information I did an abstract out of my head of my garden. I used the split compliment of red-violet and yellow green. The background is hand dyed fabric, chopped up and pieced back together. I enjoyed this challenge very much. I feel I did get rhythm and motion in the piece by placing the elements close and than further apart as they progressed and also varying sizes.
I'm booked for my big surgery on the right hand on Sept 10th, so likely will only be creating in my head for sometime :(
I will be so glad when the healing is done and I'm back to normal.
Lovely weather up here, Fall is definitely in the air and our summers are just waayyy too short.

I've seen this one before and liked it the first time I saw it! It hs very airy, wavy and soft qualities of interpreting an outdoor scene. Grear job!
