Hosta Inspiration

I vowed this would be a 'quilts only' blog, but the hosta in my backyard are inspiring me. I've no idea what they would look like in a quilt, but I sure like the way they look right now. My usual view is top-down from our second floor deck, but the angle didn't lend itself well to a photo, so this is from ground level. They are so large this year that they make that big triple window look small!

Oh, and I never noticed the reflection in the window until I posted it. This shows part of the deck wall and some of the eight-foot feather grass nearby.

Anyone have a hosta pattern?

they are beautiful hostas. 15 years ago I didn't even know the name of the plant and how I have abut 15 varieties.

You could make striped fabric, wide dark center, light narrow stripe edge, chop it off in rectangles and then take light strip and sew them on at angles to make points. Abstract rather than "photo perfect".
