Fantasy Forest

Here's a recent quilt I've completed. I used a lovely hand-dyed Just Imagination fabric for the background sky and another amazing hand-painted Mickey Lawler fabric for the foreground. I didn't have enough of the redwood tree fabric for all the trees, so I created others with inks and wax pastels. It seems like it took forever to cut out all of the foliage both for the trees and the ferns, and even longer to stitch them using free-motion machine embroidery. This photo isn't the best but I'll take another shot soon and replace it.....Today I am "inking" areas on a whole-cloth quilt I hand quilted - it's looking pretty darn good! I love trying new stuff.....xxoo Joyce
