20.25" x 16.25"

This is another piece in my botanical series. It is based on a photo I took at the North Carolina Botanical Garden of a Northern Maidenhair fern. It is a deciduous perennial fern is native to North Carolina. 

This is a wholecloth painted quilt. I added some visual texture with stenciling before masking with black/dark green, and then adding shading and details on the leaves.
