My Art Quilt Show winner!!
This quilt was my second quilt using the birch tree theme. The green rectangles are fused mosaic style onto an autumn print batik. Birch trees were cut from appropriate fabric and raw edge fused...some fraying of threads gives texture to the trees. Snippets of red fabric are machine quilted to give the appearance of falling leaves.
The best part was when we were driving to take the quilt to the arts center we kept going by forests of trees and I would exclaim - Look - there's my quilt"!" It was neat to see the effect after the quilt was done instead of before as for inspiration!
