Dazzling Carsidium

Another of JoAnn's flowers which few Master Gardeners have seen in their natural habitat.  Choice of fabrics for the color strata make a brilliant flower positioned on the background fabric dyed by Jeanette Vivano.  Color Strata work is similar to JoAnn's Japanese Colorwash Fan. A variety of techniques for the bejeweled stem, leaves and base of flower are included in the pattern.  Background quilting is similar to those in Irina Bluhm's books.  This was a feature article in the American Quilter magazine March 2012.
