Ice Flower

When I ice dyed this central piece of fabric I was disappointed in the results.
But my designing head prevailed and by adding some of my other ice dyes I created this great composition.
If you can enlarge this you can see how the quilting gave it even more artistic dimension.
I absolutely love this one.

I chose this backing fabric as the color worked and I had enough of it for backing, facings and casing. I also like fabrics for backs that are busy so if my quilting is less than perfect (and it always is) it hides the imperfect parts.
As I was doing the hand sewing on the back stitching down the facings and casing I realized the pattern in the fabric was similar to the central design.
I love it when this type of serendipitous thing happens!
