I thought I would print the words out on different green fabrics, but after several failed attempts, gave up that idea. Besides I had to get packed for my trip to Empty Spools and I would let the idea percolate for a while. Good thing I chose to wait because a trip to a quilt shop in McMinville, Oregon on the way there provided the perfect fabric to put my idea in motion.
You can see the fabric piece here. Half the width of the fabric was used for the background, while the other half was used to make the words.
I felt the piece was a bit "top heavy" so to balance it out I added small embellishments; a leaf that I made from two layers of tulle and some frog buttons. I would like to add some beads vertically to the left of "fern". What do you think?
