Fabric Art at Mt. Cuba Center

 
I had a wonderful morning teaching at Mt. Cuba Center.
 
 
The gates at the entrance hint at the natural beauty inside the garden preserve.
 
 
Toad Shade trillium along with Lady Slipper orchids and many other native plants adorn these amazing gates.
 
 
The first step is choosing fabrics to coordinate the composition. Patricia making her selections.
 
 
And her finished postcard is lovely.
 
 
Karen chose a different color way for her pink trillium.
 
 
Maggie's card reflects her knowledge of trilliums– she works at Mt. Cuba! She was very artistic and free-cut her shapes from the fabric. She even had a very cool trillium water bottle.
 
 
I think the striped border really sets off Pat's card.
 
 
I took the samples I showed in class home and added some stitching. We had a fun time and I think these creative ladies enjoyed learning to make fabric postcards. I'm betting they will be fusing fabric to explore more designs on their own.

    Hi, Terry! Love the trillium postcard! Any chance that you’ll be posting or sharing the pattern? Our guild loved you lecture, and have passed on your info to some other guilds in the area….
