When in Rome…

Okay so I bit the bullet, now that I live in Chicago, I thought I would try my hand at a fused quilt. Actually, I have also been wanting to use some of the fabric I dyed right before I moved, and fusing seemed to make the most sense, I am not much of a piecer. Besides I have a whole bolt of Misty Fuse that I got from Esterita Austin.
Here is my inspiration, a lovely agave from the hillside by my old house in California. If this goes well, I have two more agaves I would like to do in a similar way. This one is the least complicated of the three, so I thought I would try this one first. If I do make two more quilts like this, I am going to have to unpack my dyes to dye some more fabric. Now I am stuck with figuring out what to do with the background. I think it needs to be broken up, and I have a few colors in mind that I think would look good. But I am not quilte sure what to do with it yet.

  5. As always, gorgeous! And I can see a whole range of background possibilities…. tangerine sunset colors, or aquas to fool the viewer… is it really an agave or is it undersea? next to a wall? a wild sky? Or sky blues, or dark greens, or more accurately, parched arid browns of the desert…. can’t wait to see what you do!

    Cheers, Sarah
