April Journal quilt

Coming home down the lane a few days ago, the fields were full of oil seed rape in full flower.  Such a vivid colour.

April fields of gold


I dyed a piece of thin calico using a strong lemon yellow solution which is the exact colour of the rape.  The fields have lines where the tractor has been, they are not one block of colour and there are trees and shrubs bordering them.  I wanted a totally abstract approach which conveyed the impression I get when looking at the fields.
