Once again we're in the Arcata Forest snapping shots that might just turn into quilts. This shot intrigued me because of the bright greens in contrast to the dark trees.
I decided to make the quilt in 3 panels for variety.
This quilt has shown in many places and enjoyed prizes in most. What a joy to have people appreciate my work.
Techniques: Collage Picture Piecing using a picture as a photomap. Sky area is painted. Heavily quilted.
All wall quilts have a "sleeve" attached at the top back for easy hanging using a dowel, or curtain rod.
