This is a Quilt--new work

Landscape 11-1

This is a new art quilt I made for the SAQA "This is a Quilt" traveling trunk show, 2011-2012.  It is painted, stamped and mono-printed.  The background was a piece that I had stamped, printed and painted for another piece.  When I looked at it, I decided it looked like a path in the woods, so I painted trees using acrylic paint and stitched them onto the background.  I did some light free motion quilting and sent it on it's way.  The edges did not have to be finished because it will be matted.

I love this - my favourite trees! I have planted more than 60 on this place since I have been here, and also featured them in stitching, but they were not as natural looking as yours.

Great landscape. The trees do look like birches.
