KD-Quilts: Inspired and Encouraged by Nature

In this post I want to talk about how incredibly encouraged I get – not to mention TOTALLY INSPIRED by the natural beauty around us when I’m getting ready to do a project. Ok. Are you ready for this? This is a great project. Get leaves, dip them into a fabric paint (or mix of paint), and then lay them on top of a natural cloth shower curtain (or plain cloth curtains), and push them gently into the fabric. Then, lift them up – let them set – and voila! A beautifully decorated shower curtain (or room curtain) with a lovely leaf pattern! One of my neighbors did this, and it was amazing!

Another neighbor takes blooms from her yard, and adorns cakes with them (instead of fancy cake decorations).

And, once, I saw a display of hors d’oeuvres arranged in clay, terra-cotta colored plant pots, with the dips placed in hollowed out cabbages and cauliflowers.

I don’t know why I love stuff like that so much, but I do! I’ll explore this topic further!
