This project file has a lot of flowers which are supposed to represent native Australian plants, but as I am not a great artist they are rather simplified depictions of the real deal.
I have also played with the colours. There are a wide variety of colours in the Aussie bush, but there are a lot of very strong colours in the red, orange and yellow range which don’t mix well with some of the softer pastels, while others come in a wide range of colours and shades in nature.
I prefer softer colours in the bedroom, but love the variety of shapes in our native flowers. Plant breeders are playing with flower colours of any plant they fancy, including our natives, to add to the colour ranges already available, and so I thought I could breed my own colourways for my virtual quilts.
So this series of designs will feature shapes which may vaguely look like Aussie bush flowers in some of my favourite colours.
