Among Giants

43"x 86"  2005

redwood scene was a natural subject for me, having lived in the redwoods most of my life.  We attended a wedding in Richardson's Grove, it was a beautiful day and Gary took many pictures.  As I searched for just the right one to do a quilt, this shot jumped to my attention.  I decided to make it tall and narrow, just like the trees to enhance the feeling.

Techniques: The ground and leafy sections are "Mosaic Picture Pieced"; the trees are done with strips of many brown and gray fabrics.  I experimented with threadwork for the baby tree in the front and the whole thing is heavily quilted.

All wall quilts have a "sleeve" attached at the top back for easy hanging using a dowel, or curtain rod.
