A different type of eco print Design

This idea for this came from Kathy Hays weeds and Leaves on line course. The basic concept is one of using leaves as a resist and so the lattice is from baby agapanthus leaves set out on a grid. Unfortunately they moved a bit in process but the idea is there. The yellow is from a federation daisy as there are not many flowers around at this time of year in my NZ garden. There are leaflets of nandina in some of the lattice squares. I used a strong iron blanket and the actual fabric is considerably darker than this photo shows
