A few weeks ago I found these great plants at Room and Board in Edina. So yes, it is a fall picture, even though it looks like summer! The great contrast between the leaf shapes and sizes give this landscape great texture to make it so inviting.
Texture in quilting can be achieved in exactly the same way - by using prints that have different shapes and sizes. Combine larger prints that you see right away with smaller prints that you notice when you take a closer look, and you'll have an interesting quilt. Remember - "Variety is the Spice of Life!"
