Treework- Twilights Gloam or Black Hole Sun

I piece of fabric, yep that is all I used in this quilt. I had spilled some setacolor on the floor this summer and wiped it up with this cloth, The trees are made out of the ends of the piece I cut off, The dye had not hit that area. I glued the strips down and then I added a little quilting. Of course it is still in progress. I have added magic markers, dye pastel sticks and some black thread but I am going to add lots more stuff.
I want to do some bobbin work on the trees , shredded threads. beading etc but for mow , I have approx 1 hour into the project and it's coming to life.
I love trees, I love the way the light shines through them I could stare at them all day. To not be able to see the light shine thru the trees is a bad day.
I encourage you to try this, it's a great technique very relaxing too!!!!

Tree Work or I should be Doing Something Somewhere!!!

This quilt gave me the best laugh I have had in ages, I had just taken it off my machine when a really good friend walked in and saw it, she exclaimed " oh my god , you should be doing something somewhere" and I started to laugh. During any givin day, I'm a home care provider for a person with disabilities, watch my 5 year old grandson, run a small quilt shop, machine quilt peoples tops and run the largest machine quilting show in the country with my dear friend Janet-Lee Santeusanio !!! Yes I'm a slacker I should be doing something somewhere LOL.
But thats why I did this..... Its made with fabric strips, water soluble glue sticks and laundry markers. Fast and easy to do . The embellished leaves were purchased in a pack of 50 for $1 .
This Quilt is for sale on Etsy.
