Octopus's Garden: Collage

As most vegetable gardeners know, if you have zucchinis in your garden, you end up with more than enough to share with the neighborhood, so here is "A Neighborhood of Zucchini", with the repetition of leaf shape as well as the squash and the flowers. Many years ago, I made a minimal garden catalog purchase that promised five free gifts with any purchase; they sent me five packets of ... wait for it ... you guessed it ... zucchini seed!

The background is silk, the zucchinis are home dec fabric, the leaves are cotton on a fusible stiffener, and sewn on to the background along the veins so they stand out a bit, and the flowers are made from Angelina™ fiber. As a final touch, the leaves and zucchini are highlighted with a bit of foil.
