Layered leaves, Fractured landscape, done and up

     One of my pieces in the Fox Run show is the Layered Leaves hanging, 24" x 30".  It is discharged black fabric, applique leaves (no fusible or raw edge), quilted by machine and hand, and bound. I used Superior's Twist thread for quilting and perle cotton for the hand stitching. 
     Another piece, Fractured Landscape, was made from leftovovers  in my other landscape, Summer Wonder. I sewed the pieced squares to heavy weight interfacing and zig zagged the edges with the Bernina 830. I glued the squares to smaller sized matboard and then glued them to a 10" x 10" wooden pallet (coupon at Joanns) I whitewashed.
Again, the colors are off- the blues are too acid and the greens are too dark. I took the photo outside, but it didn't help.

I like your binding choice with the dots repeating the splatter shapes. The whitewashed wood was perfect as a backdrop for the little landscape pieces.

I have tried taking photos from different distances and the colors change in them. Sometimes the more distance shot is the best color and then I crop the photo.

Very cool! The leaves look great as a finished project. And I love the fractured landscape on the pallet.

Nice finishes Linda, and we all have times when we photograph our pieces and the don't turn out true, very frustrating. I like how you whitewashed the board to mount your squares, excellent idea.
By the way, I spy a wool pressing mat in your previous post, what are you thoughts on these, I'm considering buying one.
