The mountain will be more purple (Pikes Peak...purple mountain majesty) and the banner background will be an ombre. It's meant to look like the color of the red rocks we have all around--only a bit toned down. I ordered the silk from Dharma and hope to receive it soon so I can see how it dyes. I'm going to follow the "recipe" on The Lazy Dyer and dye it just the way I do cotton. It should be interesting.
I don't plan to fuse it right now, but I might change my mind once I see the silk. It's going to be an adventure.
I just started drawing out the full size pattern. It will be 25" x 45". I'll see if it looks large enough when I have the drawing done.
