The marbled commercial fabric was the starting point. The machine quilting is curved lines to emphasize the pieced curves.
Thank you to everyone who commented on my yellow green quilt. When marbling fabric in S. California, we found that adding lime to almost every piece really added a punch-thus starting my love of what was a color I didn't use before.
Another color group that became a favorite showed up when I took a color class from Judy Warren at Asilomar. I picked yellow to work with, because it was such an uncomfortable color when you get to the shades. During the painting exercises, I fell in love with the tints and shades of yellow orange. It pays to keep an open mind.
