Sunlight in the Forest

65" x 58"  2013

Proudly displayed at the National Quilt Museum Exhibit, 2017

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.
