Fall in Fabric

My love of trees is evident in my art.
I don't seem to tire of them, nor their leaves, bark, lines.
Is it their energy?
I also work on art inspired by the seasons, so I am just now finishing up this year's Fall quilt.
Remember you can click on the photos to enlarge for details. I recommend that to look at the veining in the leaves. Inside each leaf is the branch treatment in the tree... and the lines are inspiring. I find I want to paint the line with threads...
A very simple stylized interpretation on fabric. I pressed the leaf fabric onto scraps of peltex, proving one should never throw scraps away ,
small scraps of peltex stabilizer
 and directed by my heart, I drew lines with thread.

These are going on the fall quilt. I am fighting with the borders now, but it is based on my drawing, turned into painting on fabric, turned into a quilted wall hanging.

  7. I just love your fabric leaves, such a great idea to use the stiff inner fuse I will have to keep that in mind for future project.

  11. Hi, there. I found your post on Sew Cute Tuesday. You can't beat nature for inspiration. The more I observe it, the more I grow. Back in college biology I was awed by the intricacies and perfection of submicroscopic things like viruses, all the way out to the cosmos. Keep doing and enjoying it!
