Once again I've headed to the forest for inspiration. The Idea of this quilt was to make it tall. I actually considered making it taller than this, but this just barely hangs a bit off the floor in my house.
I found the inspiration tree in Sequoia Park. It was covered in burl at the bottom making it look pretty rough. That's why I chose the name--it looked like it had been there quite a while.
Techniques: Mosaic picture piecing foreground, painted sky, applique trees and foliage using a picture as a photomap. Heavily quilted.
All wall quilts have a "sleeve" attached at the top back for easy hanging using a dowel, or curtain rod.
inspiration photos--this is the top, and then the bottom - there is a whole section between. These trees are SO big that you can't get them in one picture!
