Green with Envy- Cathy Ortelle

Green with Envy
Recycled and reused fabrics were used for the "Green" challenge. And, I looked around till I found pieces in the color green. The leaves on the left were made from "roughed up" apholstery fabric. I plan on mounting this on stretcher bars with the fabric in the lower right corner. It was machine quilted with variegated green cotton thread.

  1. Great. I love the simplicity and am amazed you could get it done with all that is going on. The leaves are beautiful. Helen

  2. Cathy... this is so calm, so serene. This appears to be one of those one would like to touch.
    Nicely done.. I would like to see it when you have it mounted.

  3. Cathy, could you explain what you mean by "roughed up" upholstery? I agree with Carole I'd love to see this once you mount it.
