here. One of those is titled "Finally Finished" ... but I wasn't. Since then the tree has been strengthened and colors here and there had been enhanced with oil stick pastels.
A feature of our show is the sale of small quilts donated by members. This is my donation.
You may recognize elements from two of my show entries. The composition was the practice piece I had cut to test quilt pattern ideas as well as determining the tensions for stitching. There are quilted leaves colored in with pastels ... an idea I considered for "Imagine Monet". There were delightful birds as part of the print on that decorator fabric of which I only used the flowers. I bonded one of them, trimmed it close with scissors, ironed it on, drew a branch for a perch, and then added more quilting. The frame is extra border fabric to which I had couched yarns for "Our Biosphere Reserve".
I'll share photos of my favorite quilts when I go to the show on Friday.
