This was my first attempt at quilting. My grand daughter Liz asked for a quilt for her wedding gift. She picked out the colors and wanted a large square motif. I thought simple just make 12 inch square and sew them together. Well is wasn't simple but it was fun. Three weeks later it was done. I learned a lot making that quilt. First of all not to be so ambitious but she is very happy with it. It suits her artistic nature. She is studying art education in Fort Wayne.

I love the way trees show their shape without their leaves.
Of course there is nothing I like better than trees, leaves and landscapes.
I take my camera with whenever I go out.
The middle one is a Sycamore in the fall.
This tree in in Lafayette and I do not know the name.
The summer was so dry it dropped its leaves early.
I found this tree when I was picking up clay for pottery.

Looking at the paintings/collage's on my previous post.
I think I should donate them to the nursing home for Bingo prizes.
I went back to the sewing machine and made more mini Art Quilts of silk, wool yarn and beads.
I think that this is more my strong point.
What do you think?
My sewing machine, fabric and I work together.
Tell me what you think. I started to collage one of my bird photos and ended doing mark making with a white pen.
I am thinking of selling them separately or I could combine them in one grouping to use in my show. After all there are birds in my woods when I go walking.
I will either go back to the river scene with the red gesso background or go into the sewing room and do some landscape quilts. One of my favorite things to do.
